Various Summer Trips

Filed under: Day Trips — tomlarkin @ 1:21 am

We’ve done a lot of day trips and weekend outings lately. Here are some pretty pictures, in no particular order.

Barry took this from Salty as they followed us through the locks. We have our tarp out to protect the other boat from our tire fenders.

Tillicum Village on Blake Island. We tied up to the pilings overnight because the docks were full and rowed in for dinner.

On the way down the lake these guys flagged us down with a dead motor. We towed them about 4 miles back to Kirkland. Just like a real tugboat!

Summer afternoon at the locks.

Ballard, 14th St Boat Ramp. Stopped to visit Trader Joes. With the motor up, the boat just fits in the space behind the dock, so we don’t block the ramp.

Downtown from Lake Union. The new location for MOHAI, and Center for Wooden Boats is in the center bottom.
