We're always planning for future adventures here at the club - while exploring more of the 'Up & Over' we stumbled upon the boat-launch kayak put-in at the Everett Waterfront Marine Park. There are some launching and parking rules (check the link) but overall it looks pretty cool. It is definitely a busy place - lots of boat (power boats) in and out plus the Navy waterfront section is nearby, but, pick a quiet day and there is lots to explore in the area (especially up the Snohomish River). I've even heard there are some sunken ships around...
Another great post on the Everett marina & waterfront - here.

Ahoy! Everyone's Travel Club returns to Seattle! Last Saturday I took a quick trip from one Seattle park on the Puget Sound (salt water and tides) to another - Golden Gardens to Carkeek. It was cold. It was windy. I found a great way to save money while owning a sailboat!
Golden Gardens...not too Golden today...Brrrr.
What do we have here?
Almost sunken ship!
Here's a great little kayak entrance to Carkeek...Time to deflate...I made it! The trip took about 45 mins with the wind was at my back [and who knows what the tide was doing].
The Olympic Mountains from Golden Gardens the next day. No wind. Warm. Low tide...Maybe I should have waited...
See, you can save money and own a sailboat:) [except the cost of removal...which goes to the owner...oops]
