Canoes are gathering in Suquamish, WA for a couple of over-nights to be rested for the last leg (by water) going from Suquamish to Seattle at Shilshole Bay, through the locks, the ship canal, Lakes Union and Washington and up to the Northshore Recreation area of Sand Point – Warren Magnuson Park.
The plan is (the last we heard) is that the canoes will group up in order of protocol before leaving Suquamish, arriving at Shilshole Bay still in that order. Expected arrival at Seattle is between 9 and 10 AM Monday July 31st.
They will go around to the locks and enter as directed by the locks staff. This process will take a period of time, just to get situated in the locks.
Once through the locks, it will be about 3 more hours paddle going through the canal and the lakes before getting the the landing at Northshore Rec. area of Warren Magnuson Park / Sand Point.
