Sea Kayak - Stretch & Reach Islands

Tides and weather were perfect for this trip. We launched as the tide was rising at Allyn Waterfront Park and paddled south around the west side of Reach Island to the State Park on Stretch Island where we took a break and had lunch. Then we paddled the east side of Stretch, around the south end, and to the west side while there was plenty of water to cover the tide flats. Then we crossed Case Inlet to Vaughn Bay and back to Allyn. We observed seals, porpoise, an Osprey diving for fish, a Kingfisher, and other sea birds. The afternoon wind from the north cooled the temperatures. We also did rescue practice for one person doing this trip as a student paddle.
