Swinomish Channel Swing Rail Bridge

You've read a bit this week about our cruise to La Conner through the Swinomish Channel. As we passed the swing railroad bridge at the north entrance to the channel, the sky to the north started to brighten.

The bridge remains open for boat traffic to pass unless a train comes on it's way towards Anacortes.

Tucked along side the bridges over the Swinomish Channel were some classic work boats.

And a funky little community of homes or cabins along the water's edge. One had a big for sale sign if you are interested. -- Margy


  1. Where sky and water meet is a wonderful place to be!


    Sky so high,
    Sky so blue,
    Tell me why
    I love you.

    Sunsets here and here

  2. I'm always fascinated by movable bridges - nice shots.

  3. where sea and sky meet there is beauty, you have captured some of it here

  4. Fond farewell to Klaus. You are right --he will be missed.

    The garden here after not doing much in the early monthes rose to the challenge in the hot August sun. Well hot for here--70s. In your case--growing over water must cool things down too. Have you checked the Skagit? It is finally going down a tad. I have never seen it so high for so long. Of course I am only seeing the lower Skagit.
    Super sailing--MB
