Is it ok to leave your car when waiting for a ferry?

It might be a silly question, but I like to be prepared than find out it is not working later. I am planning to take the ferry at 11:35 am with our car from SJI to Orcas this Saturday. Wondering if it is safe if we park our car while waiting in line to get on the ferry ~ an hour before then to walk around town?

Yes, it's safe. Lock the doors, of course ...

Yes, you can park your car in line for the next upcoming ferry to Orcas and walk around the town of Friday Harbor until about 10 minutes before they start loading the vehicles (they announce a warning over the intercom beforehand but you have to be within about 1 block of the landing to hear that.) The vast majority of people waiting with their cars in the loading lot are indeed walking around town or eating, shopping etc while they await loading of the ferry.
