Blake Island State Park, WA

We are 'pros' now, having been through the small locks with Willie's Tug all by ourselves.  That's one in a row!

We went through the large locks alone on our boat last week.  One in a row!

Stern Line

As before in the large locks, Herb works the bow line, as I handle the stern.

To the Bow

Viewing Bridge

A short ride across Puget Sound and to the south brings us to Blake Island State Park.  The island is 475 acre marine camping park, accessible only by boat.

Find Willie's Tug.  

At low tide we climb the ramp to see over the breakwater for a view of the Seattle skyline and the Space Needle.

A short walk around the grounds reminds us that there are deer which we may see in the evening or early morning.  Jake will be on leash!

A Park Ranger comes by at dusk to let us know that we may be visited by raccoons at night, and that we should have all food inside the cabin.

With the cabin and Jake secured, and the gentle roll of the surf, we sleep well.
