I was out on my kayak yesterday for a little voyage from Ebey’s Landing Waterfront Park in Marysville, down to 10th Street Marina in Everett. Susan dropped me off at about 1100 and I intended to catch the last of the ebb tide out of Ebey Slough, and then cross the mouth of the Snohomish River delta and visit Jetty Island. I had the van parked and waiting down at 10th Street, so the only logistical issue was…Would there be enough water on a 3.86 foot low tide to navigate across the tide flats? Well, there almost was. I did have to drag the kayak through ankle deep water in a few places.
I was expecting to see eagles, ospreys, great blue herons and the rest of the usual suspects. What I didn’t expect was to be engulfed by hundreds of double-crested cormorants that were nesting on the mile long string of derelict pilings.
I made a little video of my trip:
And here are a couple of my favorite images from the day.
Well I hope you liked the adventure as much as I did. Kat
