Chuckanut Bay Paddle

Eight paddlers headed out on what was forecast to be a rainy Sunday to explore Chuckanut Bay south of Bellingham. To the delight of all, the forecast proved to be off a little, and the group meandered through gentle swells, admiring the geology and wildlife that is so striking in this area. A stop on Chuckanut Island for lunch, then north around the inner shore, exploring the coves and bays as they came up, it was a pokey, relaxed paddle that finished on placid waters, roofed with blue skies filled with bulging cumulus clouds, impotent but beautiful, with the San Juans beckoning to the west. A most excellent way to open a summer season of paddling on our Salish Sea, with many more opportunities to come!

Pictures?  Oh yeah, we have heaps of pictures here! Thank you Harry marx and James Rose!
