Water conditions on Lake Washington and the run out to the Locks were freakishly calm last Saturday, so I did a relaxed 23-mile 'yak cruise from the Seward Park boathouse, north under the floating bridges, headed west through the Montlake Cut, Portage Bay, Gasworks Park, Freemont, then hung out at the Locks for a bit before heading back. The air was warm, so the dry top stayed stuffed in the hull. Forgot to bring food, so I made the trip on a single small water bottle. Driving home, I pulled into an Sbux and ordered half the take-away menu. Some pix: heading north from Seward Park... first of two passes through The Cut.. WTF?!? ...more bridges... un-be-freaking-lievable glass after the Freemont Bridge... Da Big Boys! Wanted to head through, but ran out of time waiting, so I turned tail. Maybe next time... Happy tourists...anyone need a ride to the airport? ...and back through the Cut. Great Day on the Water! oh...and here's my boat in a pic from a previous cruise...ain't she purdy!
