    Tamia Grant waits patiently for the pirate show with a blue bucket on her head on the opening day of Jetty Island Friday in Everett. Grant was visiting with her sisters Trinity and Treasure and her parents.

Jetty Island Days began Friday with a treasure hunt led by Pirates of the Puget Sound.
The Pirates, known as the "Jack Pack," are a division of the Seattle Knights and have visited Jetty Island every opening day of the last five years.
Each summer, Everett officials operate a small ferry between the 10th Street Boat Launch and the island. The trip takes only a couple of minutes.
Everett residents and groups of 12 or more can make reservations, or just show up at the 10th Street boat launch and grab a free pass.
