The following Saturday was the Washington Ferry Holiday Cruise sponsored by AFECT (Active Ferry Employee Charitable Trust). Paul, Cherlyn and I joined them for this excursion on a Washington State ferry which went half way to Bremerton and then back. We left our car in the parking lot and walked on—past employees, clowns, musical groups, Coast Guard and Marine volunteers. What a happy, festive atmosphere. Santa made his rounds passing out stuffed toys while we enjoyed being on the water and munching on snacks provided by the volunteers. When we disembarked 1 ½ hours later Clark and Phil each received a large stuffed animal donated by Toys R Us.
