Decided to make a very scenic and fun trip from Steilacoom to Seattle using the tides and winds in my favor. Total distance was a bit over 74 miles in 10 hours and 16 minutes (7.2 mph). Had fast, strong currents and morning diurnal winds for the ride up through the narrow passages, and then made it to Edmonds just in time for the tidal switch and afternoon Northerlies to blow me back down to Seattle where a storage unit and U-haul was waiting for my second workout of the day. Ugh!

Nice glassy morning for a mellow paddle and beautiful sunrise. Always surprising how many other people in Seattle get up before dawn on Sunday with the same exact idea, and then go do it. Must be something in the water.
