Kayak Point County Park

Sunday, September 4, 2011

After church we ate at Patty’s Eggnest which is supposed to have the best breakfast in Mill Creek and the surrounding area. We enjoyed our Sausage Gravy and Biscuits and California Eggs Benedict, but it doesn’t compare to Voula’s Café in the Seattle U-District.

We met Joe’s co-worker Jorge at Kayak Point County Park to go out and paddle our kayaks. This park was hopping with many reserved picnic shelters and chairs lining the pebble beach. The boat launch was very active.

We soon had our kayaks in the water. The last time I had been on a kayak was at James Island County Park in Charleston in 2004! It took a little while to get comfortable with only making small movements and paddling with my upper torso and not just arms. We paddled north toward Stanwood and the roadway onto Camano Island.

My biggest worry was capsizing and struggling to get back in the kayak. Fortunately that did not happen.

We saw a seal peek his head above the water checking out the surroundings. Whenever we started paddling toward him, he’d go back under, but he followed us throughout the 3 miles we kayaked from the park.

We paddled to Warm Beach which is a Christian camp and conference center overlooking Port Susan Bay. There were many families out on the beach enjoying the beautiful day.

Sorry I have no pictures today. I forgot to make sure we packed the waterproof camera case.

After 3 hours of paddling we decided to grab dinner with Jorge at Leatherheads Pub & Eatery in Stanwood. It was a cool historic firehouse with decent beer and pub food.
