Meet at Lowman Beach Park for an 9:00AM launch.

On the south side of the park is a small driveway that leads to space for two cars to park and unload boats near the water.  There is plenty of unlimited parking on nearby streets.  Alternately, park on the street near the park and carry across.  

 

We will cross to Blake Island, circumnavigate, and paddle back. 

Conditions depend on weather.  We will likely go in winds forecast up to 20 knots. If winds are too strong we will find a place to play in the winds.  

In calm conditions this is an opportunity for a nice paddle near Seattle and to get some exercise.  In rougher conditions this is good practice and even more exercise.
