Similk Bay Paddle

Saturday January 28, 2017 conditions: slight overcast light breeze 48*, 4 1/2 hours, 10 1/2 miles

Seven NSSKA paddlers launched at Snee-oosh Point on Skagit Bay heading northwest to tour Hope Island State Park then paddling north towards Skagit Island and into Similk Bay. After a quick lunch break, in the winter sunshine at the site of a potential future NSSKA club facility which admittedly needed a bit of TLC, we toured the bay before heading back south towards Hope Island. At Hope we stopped briefly to chat with a group of fellow WKC paddlers before returning to our launch site. Along today's journey we saw an abandoned, half sunk 40-50 foot vessel, loads of wintering sea birds, cormorants, king fisher's, seals and eagles.

Here’s some pictures by Bill Porter and Karen Bertram.
