5 1/2 miles North of Edmonds on a sandy coastal spit of land, (1 1/2 miles North of Picnic Point) is an EXTREMELY interesting and unique Pacific NW area archeological feature...
4 (or more...) beached wooden hull turn of the century (or earlier) sailing ship era freighters!
These were sailing ships that were beached and simply abandoned!
One is almost fully intact!
They are clearly evident on satelite maps! Follow the satelite map north along the shoreline 5 1/2 miles north from Edmonds and then go gaah...
I gotta paddle to them and check them out. I want to celebrate my 55th birthday! I turn 55 on Nov 20th and I can't think of anything better then to have a picture of me wrecked with my paddle buddies! he he he...
On Saturday, November 17th there is a sporty 2.5 knot EBB current (going North) at Admirality Inlet at 11:15 AM followed by slack water at 2:53 PM. The Flood maxes at 0.8 knots at 4:41 PM, (going South). Sunset will be at 4:30 PM roughly and it will be dark at 5:00 PM or so...
Let's ride the current going north with a departure at noon. Let's depart the wreck site at 2:00 PM and return to Edmonds before 4:00 PM, pausing slightly to let the Edmonds ferry go by!
Party like wrecked monkeys when we get back to Edmonds!
Come celebrate! The election will finally be over, come celebrate our Thanksgiving, come celebrate mmmeee!!!!
Come onnn...you know me...I gotta beg for it! :-)
Fully equipped, skilled and capable paddlers only!
(This could be like SK-XXIII or something...who knows!)
