Dogs run free, but not at DOC

Took Annie to the off-leash dog park in Lakewood today, then took the long way home. We drove through Steilacoom in time to watch the prison ferry arrive from McNeill Island, our own Puget Sound Alcatraz. I've always thought of the boats as an interesting form of prisoner transport; this was the first time I've stuck around to see who disembarked. Tonight it was DOC employees on their way home from the day shift, like any other commuters - it's a full-service flotilla.
