We bought a canoe!
So far we have taken out on Elliot Bay, from Alki Beach, and on Lake Washington from Martha Washington Park. One of the first wildlife sightings was a harbor seal in Elliot Bay (then again in the Sound) and a few days ago we spotted a bald eagle and a blue heron on Lake Washington!
I feel like I’m Lewis and Clarking it whenever we go out onto semi-open water with the canoe. The beautiful water, the ocean smells, the waves from the barges and motor boats (well I suppose Lewis and Clark probably didn’t have those…)
We are planning a canoe trip soon, possibly to do some canoe camping. I will take plenty of pictures when we do!
