The view from the Virginia V | Photo of the day 7.15

Visitors aboard the steamship Virginia V enjoy the view from the top deck before the 1898 vessel departs the city dock in Winslow for an around-the-Island cruise Sunday.

The four-hour circumnavigation of Bainbridge aboard the Virginia V — the last of the “Mosquito Fleet” steamers — is a major annual fundraiser for the Bainbridge Island Historical Museum.

This year’s program, which called out past communities along the island’s shoreline and other historical nuggets, was led by Ralph Munro, a member of Bainbridge’s pioneer Munro family and, a point of local pride, a former Washington Secretary of State.
