Weekend Lake Union Trip

Filed under: Day Trips — tomlarkin @ 1:01 pm

After a late start on Saturday afternoon we motored in a light rain to South Lake Union for dinner at Agua Verde and then drinks at Chandlers Crabhouse where I read a programming book on the iPad and Meryll connected to her work computer from her Linux netbook. A pleasant geeky evening. Then we went to the Ballard public dock and tied up for the night. Very cold and rainy evening. It rained all night.

In the morning we realized the boat next to us on the dock was abandoned. The notice on the window was a week old. The boat was unlocked and open, but didn’t seem to be vandalized yet. The boat was in pretty good shape although the lower unit of the outdrive was removed.

In the morning we motored around the ship canal and then to Terry Pettus park next to the houseboats on the east side of the lake. We walked to Pete’s grocery for junk food and up to Eastlake for coffee.

Then home in the afternoon, propelled by 20 knot winds which brought out the kite surfers and windsurfers.
