Re: Should I take my Canoe?
Definitely bring your canoe, but also definitely make sure that your friends from Denver know about where the tidal currents can be dangerous. There are many places up there where it will be literally impossible to paddle against the current if they go too far. Lots of safe little harbors where it will be beautiful, but also places where an open canoe is not very safe. Speiden Channel just outside of Roche Harbor is one of these places.
Amphibious Macroplankton Oughtredia doublendus
Mostly found frequenting the littoral and estuarine zones in the southern half of the Salish Sea, though sightings have been recorded both north and south of this area, and occasionally, but rarely, inland, in freshwater environments. This species lives on micro-brewed beer and dutch-oven biscuits,and displays brightly colored nylon and gore-tex plumage during the rainy season. Approach with caution!
