Deadwater Slough

A muddy launch

The launch, if you could call it that, was so muddy that I had to poodle-scooch down the bow of the kayak to keep from squishing into the knee deep mud.

And that is how my kayaking trip on Deadwater Slough began.  A beautiful crisp winter day and light wind made for a very relaxing and enjoyable paddle.  Unlike the beautiful waters of Puget Sound, this was real “brown water navy” stuff.  Tight and twisting, each bend in the slough flushed a new raft of ducks.

There was no real destination, I just paddled to the end of the slough and then backtracked to a place where I could scramble out and climb up the bank.  Then I found a comfy place to sit and brew up some cowboy coffee and munch on my chocolate chip cookies.

That’s it, job done.
