Kayaking Puget Sound

How about a non-stamping post for a change? Here's a few pictures of the kayak trip we did last Saturday. The weather was just gorgeous, 86 degree's and not a cloud in the sky!

I wanted to give you a visual idea of where Puget Sound is located, so I'm inserting a few maps! ;-)

The area's in the blue circles are where we were at.

My husband, me and our two friends paddled all the way around this little island (which doesn't look so little on the map). We estimated it was about 5 miles when all was said and done.

That is Ketron Island in the back ground.
We're getting closer!!! The water was really clear, which is not usually the case with Puget Sound. We saw a handful of sealions, lots of fish, gelly and star fish and other water fowl that you would normally see!
Taking a much needed break on one of the few beaches on the island. There are houses and cabins on the island, but only a handful of full time residents.
We were all pooped after this! But I do have to say that it was a lot of fun and relaxing at the same time! The muscles in my shoulders were a bit sore the next day. Especially my thumbs from holding the paddle. But we had a fabulous time and got a bit of sun to boot!
See ya!!!
