Olympic Class Ferry

The SeattlePI is reporting:

The first of the 144-car ferries under construction will be named Tokitae, a greeting meaning “nice day, pretty colors.” It’s also the name of a Washington orca better known as Lolita at the Miami Sequarium.

Samish is a tribal word meaning “giving people.”
