True Story: Today is the 4th of July, and I have the day off from work. I spontaneously woke up just before 5:00am and felt compelled to actually get out of bed. My inner photographer must have sensed something and wanted me to see if there was anything to take a picture of. There was. Another beautiful sunrise over Tramp Harbor.
Last night I was told that something unusual happens on Vashon Island the morning of the 4th of July but wasn’t told what it was – only that I would hear it. At around 6:00, an unearthly whining, buzzing noise rose off the water, crescendoed and seemed to move around the island. I never saw a thing, which made the effect even more ethereal. Eventually it became obvious that this was the traditional early-morning jet-ski cruise around Vashon Island. Even though I never saw them, it was still pretty cool.
