The View from Dead Man's Curve
I finally was able to get a photo of town from Dead Man's Curve. Gibson Cove is in the foreground. The Kalakala was parked there for years- a really cool relic from the art deco period. The Kalakala was an upscale ferry that traveled up and down Puget Sound. Looks like a UFO from an old black and white sci-fi movie. Some guy managed to dig the thing out- it was buried in the ground and used as a cannery for years- and somehow he managed to float it back down to Seattle. His vision was to restore it, but it has since changed hands. Hopefully it will be restored and find a permanent home. It's too cool to scrap in my opinion.
