Duwamish River Paddle


We put the Oru kayak together and paddled down the Duwamish from the Star Fire Sports Complex to Diagonal Park; about ten miles.

We zipped right along with a good current for the first third then the river widened and the incoming tide slowed the flow.

There were submerged trees and a few areas with strong eddies but we had no mishaps and enjoyed the day.

We saw seagulls, blue herons, eagles and many different ducks.

Walks Toward Seward Park

Seattle, United States, Washington State

Walking before dawn is like opening a geode; you never know whether the sky will burst into glowing color or a steel grey sky will simply slowly change to a lighter hue.

Time permitting, my favorite thing to do is head east along the Lake Washington path towards Seward Park and catch the sun rising over Mt. Rainier and a glowing lake.

Here are some morning walk photos.

Lights cut through the mist next to the lake.

Rowers near the Mt. Baker boating center.

This tree is now gone but graced the curve for years.
