“This image evokes my childhood memories of riding on the ferry from the island where I lived, to the city of
Seattle. The Washington State Ferry system serves an area encompassing Puget Sound and southern British Columbia, Canada, waters known as the Salish Sea. If the weather’s clear a ferry ride can offer incredible views of mountains, islands or a city.
I still find a touch of excitement when I ride a ferry, and the sea life and bird life will always fascinate me.” –ML Pendleton
“This is just outside of Winthrop. I was born in the coastal part of Washington state – the green and wet part – and have spent most of my life here, except for some early years in Oklahoma and many summers in dry southeastern Washington. But the part of the state that pulls me, that fills my heart, is the central northeast. The heat in the summer, the snow in the winter – there are real seasons here. The expanse of the sky. The hills. It combines the best of areas I’ve lived in, and gives me a feeling of endless territory, of something just over the next hill, even if it’s another hill. I feel lighter, I can breathe deeply.” – Marilyn Dahl
