2nd Annual Blake Is. Campout and Tillicum Village Salmon Bake
Save the Date Aug. 11-12 — Pancake Paddle Special Edition — Blake Island Campout and Tillicum Village Salmon Bake. Gourmet glamping at its finest! Here’s the plan: Saturday, Aug 11th, 9AM we meet at the Lincoln Park South parking lot in West Seattle with camping gear sufficient for one night. We will paddle directly to Blake Is., which is about 4 mi one way (about the same distance from our Lk Union dock to Yestler’s Swamp). We will set up camp at Blake Island State Park at their first come first serve campsites. We will spend the afternoon crabbing, exploring the State Park’s shoreline via water and/or trails. Come late afternoon we will make our way to the north end of the island to partake of the world famous Tillicum Village salmon bake and PNW native dance performance. At the conclusion of those festivities we will spend the rest of the warm summer evening around our campfire telling (not necessarily true) stories of old Puget Sound. On Sunday morning we cook up breakfast then paddle back home by noon. Here are the pics from last year: https://www.meetup.com/The-Lake-Union-Pancake-Paddle/photos/28101425/463866449/ Tillicum Village Salmon Bake and Show $52. Purchase a dinner & show ticket online at: https://www.argosycruises.com/argosy-cruises/tillicum-excursion/ Be sure to buy the Sat. Aug. 11th 4:30 seating, "Island Boater" option. There is free overnight street parking at the north end of Lincoln Park. Blake Is. State Park has restrooms and first come first serve campsites and fire pits. Each site camps multiple tents for around twenty or thirty bucks a site. Safety Notice: Since we will be traveling across Puget Sound this trip is subject to favorable water conditions. PFDs, whistles, traveling as a group are mandatory. Even though we are paddling during daylight hours a waterproof light might also be a good idea. See you then! _______________________________________________________ The pancake paddle is open to all paddle craft and meets at 9AM on the first Sundays of every month at South Lake Union. We have breakfast together then leisurely paddle for an hour or so on the placid urban waters of Lake Union. If you don't own a kayak, SUP or canoe, they can be rented by the hour at the dock we launch from and at several other convenient locations around the lake--be sure to confirm rentals in advance.

    What we're about

    Eat Swedish pancakes. Then paddle. This group is open to all paddle craft and meets at 9AM on the first Sundays of every month on the top floor of the Swedish Club which is open to the public on pancake days. We enjoy the ten million dollar view and have a Swedish pancake breakfast together to the accompaniment of live Scandinavian folk music. Then we take the short walk down to the lake and leisurely paddle on the placid urban waters of Lake Union for an hour or so. If you don't own a kayak, SUP or canoe, they can be rented by the hour at the dock we launch from and at several other convenient locations around the lake--be sure to confirm rentals in advance.
