A change of venue is necessary, because Mr. Fletcher (a very nice fellow at the Washington State Ferry system office) says that the Mukilteo run is too short for this kind of event.

We have moved it south, and earlier in the day. I will be taking the 1:30 Edmonds-Kingston ferry and they'll stop the boat briefly so the ashes can be scattered. Here is a map to the terminal.

I'll be there at least 15 minutes early, and will walk on board (there's an overhead walkway, new since I last rode that ferry). Once on board and underway, I'm to flag down a crew member and let them know I'm there and they'll pass word to the captain. He/she still has the final say, but barring really bad weather, there is likely no hindrance to the event.

I don't have anything in particular in mind to say, but if anyone has any remarks or a song to offer, let me know and we will make time to say it or sing it. Maybe a nice chorus of "The Old Settler's Song?"
