Travel Photo of the Day: Early Morning Ferries on Puget Sound, Seattle, USA
It was Luis's first trip to the U.S. in the fall and winter of 2009 (not counting his childhood trip to Disneyworld) and we landed in Seattle in December, right before Christmas, one of the drearier times of year in the city. We were behind schedule on our itinerary; my goal had been to show Luis one of my favorite places in the U.S. much earlier in the year when there are sunny skies and green parks and gardens, but by the time we got there, all had turned rainy, grey and dreary. While sitting over steaming bowls of clam chowder at a cafe in Pike's Place Market with Luis and a good friend, watching ferries silently glide across Puget Sound in the morning light, I realized that the greyness and stillness had its own kind of beauty.
