Hello, hello fellow history buffs!
Tomorrow's History Cafe will explore maritime exploration in Puget Sound.
Follow George Vancouver as he explores our inland waters in 1792. Learn of some of the names he bestowed on our islands, points and inlets as well as names chosen by later explorers and settlers.
Maritime historian Dick Blumenthal has a lifelong relationship with the waters of Puget Sound that began with an eight-foot homemade dingy on Lake Washington. Through his investigations into local maritime history Dick has located the original journals of our earliest explorers, gaining a better sense of their efforts, the hardships they faced and the places they visited.
We hope to see you there!
