Here is my son Morgan’s future brother-in-law, Bob, enjoying his first visit to the Northwest. The Mountlake Bridge is in the background. This is part of our happy group at the marine gas station. Cousin Jerry, son Morgan, cousin Marie, future daughter-in-law Eileen and her brother, Bob.
I stayed on the boat.
A real highlight was our route took us under six bridges – four of which had to open for us! As anyone who has driven in Seattle knows - too many hours of our lives have been spent waiting for bridges to open and close for boats. It felt great to be on the other end of the situation.And we got to experience the Locks firsthand, as the water lowered to go from the fresh water of Lake Washington to the salt water of Puget Sound.
Eileen took this gorgeous video as we approached Shilshole. ( Sailor Morgan)
