8/17 - morning Low Tide Beach Hike and BBQ - Golden Gardens to Richmond Beach

I'll be in town this day so I thought I should post an event.

Bring something for the BBQ to share. This is a cross posted event.

Bring bus fare or drop off a car at Richmond beach ahead of time.Bus info (about 1.5 hours total, including walking); or meet us at 6:30am for car drop offs and car pooling. The bus runs every 30 minutes at 5 minutes to the half hour from 20th NW and Richmond Beach Road. Route numbers: Bus 348  Bus358  Bus 48 

Schedule:

7:20-7:30am - meet everyone, sign in names to keep track of people

7:30-7:40 am - discuss the route, environmental and safety precautions

7:40-11:45am - hike

noon-3:00pm - BBQ at the upper Picnic Shelter at Richmond Beach Park. Bring something to share: if your first name starts with a vowel, bring a main dish; if it starts with a consonant, bring a salad, veggie, snack or dessert; if you don't know your vowels from your consonants, ask ;-) if you don't know how to spell your name, look at your drivers license ;-).

BYOBeverage. Keep in mind that this is a park and like virtually all parks in the US, alcoholic beverages are prohibited.

Carpooling: I can pick up carpool people from Shoreline, Lake City, Greenlake, Northgate,  etc.; email or call me if you want a ride. My cell # is [masked]

Carpooling with me so far:

 

Hey we have a nice minus tide, which means we have a beach, so let's hike from Golden Gardens, past Carkeek at our 2 mile mark, past the wild section at Richmond Highlands and on to Richmond Beach Park, figure about 4-5 hours total, then take the metro bus back to the start, bring bus fare. Bus info (about 1.5 hours total, including walking) while we could drop cars off in advance, that doesn't save time for the drivers. The bus runs every 30 minutes at 5 minutes to the half hour from 20th NW and Richmond Beach Road. Route numbers Bus 348  Bus 358  Bus 48 

It's about a 7 mile hike, the tide is at its lowest at 8am and we have to beat the tide or we swim ;-)

There may be some sections with water on them, your feet may get wet, so wear shoes that you don't mind getting wet.

      No problem. However, my car is not so tidy... How long do you think it would get from there to GG? I'll pick you two up ten minutes before that. Note: my cell seems to be working so send a #.

      It's only a five-minute drive from that intersection to Golden Gardens. I'll be out in that Safeway parking lot at 7:15 tomorrow morning.

    Question about food: whatever we bring should either be kept cold or not need refrigeration. I wonder if we can buy food for the BBQ after the hike.

    For anyone that is interested, I have decided to leave my car at Richmond Beach at 6:30am and catch a taxi to Golden Gardens, I'll pay for the taxi, so if you want a ride, let me know. [masked] or[masked]

      Saul, where will you be leaving from to go to Richmond Beach and park your car?

      August 14, 2013

    • Saul_K

    Taxi ride is for those that want to leave their cars at Richmond Beach so they don't need to take the bus back after the hike. The post hike BBQ will have salmon, prawns, burgers, dogs, yum
