During the Labor Day weekend, we loaded our Hobby Cat kayak onto the car and headed to Alki Beach, the westernmost point in West Seattle. It was early in the morning so we got a parking spot across from a launch ramp and easily carried the kayak into the water.

It took us about an hour to pedal across the Sound to downtown Seattle. Along the way, we passed the container shipping facilities and waved to several ferries, gliding to and from Bainbridge and Vashon Islands.

We went as far as Discovery Park, before we made the journey across the water, back to Alki.

Hopefully, we’ll have a couple more sunny weekends so we can see other parts of Seattle from our kayak!
