Downwind

Had a breeze of 5-10 knots on the tail all day. So, even though current didn’t do a whole lot for me after I got past Point Defiance, I still made pretty good time. It was a day of rain, one squall following another for the whole time I was on the water.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERASo, the bottom line is that I made it to Southworth after 3 days of paddling. That’s not bad for a boat made out of 2-liter bottles. I’m off the trip now until next Thursday, which will be the start of the meaty part of the route, lots of current and a few big crossings. Also – and I’m pretty fired up about this – next weekend will be the Earth Day visit to the Suquammish nation, and I think that’s going to be a lot of fun for all involved.

The wind is blowing hard out there right now. It feels good to be off the water, home and dry, at least for now.
