This painting, by an old girlfriend of my late husband,
has hung in my house for 33 years —
Yesterday I took this photo, from the same vantage point—
And this, from the National Park Service:
The Ferry House is located above the beach at Ebey’s Landing. Some mistakenly think this is the Ebey House, but that structure no longer stands. The historic Ferry House, built c. 1858, was a place where early travelers to the island, arriving by boat, could get lodging, food, postal services, supplies, and overland transportation to Penn Cove, where they could continue their journey by ship. The NPS is working on restoring the Ferry House to preserve it for future generations.
