Snohomish River Delta – part one

First step after choosing the route is to check the tides and winds.
Ready to go from the Everett Public Marina.
Old logs from more active timber days.
Train and car bridges that will open for boats.
There were many Osprey nests on the old pilings.
Lunch on Ferry Baker island.
While eating a family of otters came up on the beach then dashed off in surprise at our presence.
Seals were sunning on logs.
A quick visit to Jetty Island just opposite the marina. A big wind came up and the paddle back was a push even with the tidal help.
A stranded boat on the far side of the island. The boat was empty but two muddy shirts flapped in the stiff breeze.
Here’s our route. Next trip we’ll start from Langus Riverfront Park and head towards Spencer Island.
