Thanks to Jan who sent in these photos this morning (sorry I didn't have a chance to post until now):

"the barge is picking up a shovel that was crating a rip-rap to strengthen a bulkhead a few doors down from us". 

This could be good timing if you check ahead to the weather with a small craft advisory for tomorrow for the Puget Sound.  This from the Marine Forecast:

TUE…SE WIND 15 TO 25 KT. WIND WAVES 2 TO 4 FT. CHANCE OF RAIN.

TUE NIGHT…SE WIND 15 TO 25 KT. WIND WAVES 2 TO 4 FT. RAIN.

WEDNESDAY…RAIN IN THE MORNING…THEN MOSTLY CLOUDY WITH SCATTERED SHOWERS. BREEZY. HIGHS NEAR 60. SOUTH WIND 15 TO 25 MPH WITH LOCAL GUSTS TO 40 MPH.
