Even though fall is officially here and the leaves have begun to change the weather has been fantastic for paddling. Ricardo and I put in at the public boat launch at the Boston Harbor Marina and paddled south to Olympia. Along the way we ran right into the middle of a Star Class dinghy race, then stopped for lunch at Priest Point Park. We ended up stopping at the beach at Port Plaza which is right next to the public market and an Anthony's Seafood restaurant. It's a great place to stop except that the beach disappears at high tide. Finally we wandered around the marina before reaching the most southern end of Puget Sound, where the old wooden tug "Sand Man" was on display.
