June 17

This is the view from the Fourth Street Bridge looking north. If it were sunny you could see the Olympic Mountains in the distance. The old tracks and any of the posts in the water on the west side of the bay are left over from old logging days. Now all the logging is Weyerhauser, and it's loaded from the two cranes at the Port of Olympia in the upper right corner. This little pond on the left drains completely at low tide. The harbor seals hang out in here and come out into the center of the inlet to feed as the tide goes out. You can almost see one of them in the reflection of the tree on the left. I think it dove under just before I took the picture, and just the ripples are left. (Click twice on the photo to zoom). I probably could have taken this photo in better weather, but as far as overcast shots go, this one is pretty nice, and it does show a few sunbreaks too. Guess I'm getting nostalgic as the move gets closer, trying to capture all the Olympia scenes before we go.
