Ports of Call and Destinations....Part 3

Serindipity

No matter where you go in the maritime Pacific Northwest, you will always see wonderful vessels.

Admiralty Inlet

Known by locals as the place where you can find the only rough water for miles, it was a flat calm morning with Mount Baker in the distance.

Bell Harbor Marina

Bell Harbor is the only marina right downtown in Seattle, definately in the heart of it!

Race!

A race in Puget Sound, just outside of Blakely Harbor off of Bainbridge Island.

Blakely Harbor

Once home to the worlds largest saw mill this anchorage saw tall masted lumber ships crowding into it while awaiting loading from 1863 until the mill closed in the 1920's.

Port of Bremerton

The Olympic's provide the backdrop for Bremerton, and the USS Turner Joy.

Approaching Port Hudson

Port Hudson, just to the NE of Port Townsend, many times considered one and the same.

Point Hudson Marina

This is the lovely marina at Point Hudson, home of the Wooden Boat Museum seen in the background.

Port of Port Townsend

This is one of the largest Travel Lifts on the west coast...Boat Haven, Port of Port Townsend.

Mt. Rainer

At dawn Mt. Rainer dominates the view from the east side of Eagle Island in Balch Passage.

Rich Passage

Mount Rainer looms over Blake Island in the distance as we are coming around the dog leg in Rich Passage. You can see the current and tide rips in the water.

Commencement Bay

Tacoma...again Mt. Rainer dominates the horizon, looking over the commerical docks in Commencment Bay.

Case Inlet

A lone sailboat wends it's way through the still waters of Case Inlet, South Puget Sound

Nelle Bly at Sucia

Ewing Cove, Sucia Island

Sucia Group

Several small Islets are scattered around Sucia, isolated only when the tide is high.

Echo Bay

Looking West along the North shoreline of Echo Bay, Sucia

Leaving Echo Bay

We get a glimpse, between the Islets, of a sailboat leaving Echo Bay.

How do they grow?

It is amazing to see trees growing on rocks along the shore with virtually no topsoil to speak of. Bedwell Harbor, South Pender Island, BC, Canada

You can see THESE rocks...

seeing rocks like this along the shore at low tide, make you wonder just how many lurk just beneath your hull in that quiet anchorage you just chose. Typical shoreline of Gulf Islands.
