Meet at 6:15 AM at the 65th Street Park and Ride (far north part of north parking lot).  We want to catch the 7:10 AM ferry and need to leave on time.  We should be at Ediz Hook around 9:30 AM.  We will park across from the restrooms most of the way out the spit.  

This is a naturalist trip that will focus on birds and whatever else we can find.  We will do some short walks at various stops but nothing extensive.  Wear layers, bring drinks and lunch.   Bring binoculars and a spotting scope if you have one.

Carpool costs will be very roughly $50 plus the ferry cost both ways.  We will catch a leate afternnon ferry back to Seattle.
