    OK, I managed another overnighter at the Turtle-Flambeau Flowage in northern Wisconsin this weekend.

    After setting up camp, we set out on a paddling/rowing excursion for the day, up to the northern tip of Big Island.

    Where we stopped ashore for a good long walk in the woods.

    Some people thought they shouldn't have to paddle back to camp:

    That bow seat in the Alaska is quite comfy, and well out of the way of the sail and rigging. A good place for non-sailors to sit and enjoy the ride.

    After dropping off the crew back at camp, I went out alone to explore a little interconnected web of backwaters and bays that I had never ducked into--starting with a crossing that took me about 2 miles east of camp, perfect evening sailing.

    Right close to the main boat ramp, and I had never checked it out before. A truly magical place in the last light of a mid-October day.

    I wandered around for an hour or so, and finally left--being careful to leave some avenues unexplored...

    And took the long way back to camp, holding out hope that the dying evening breeze would be enough to see me home.

    And, as the first stars appeared overhead, with camp less than a mile away, I knew I'd make it.

    10.jpg

    I sailed up into the narrow channel running past our camp, dropped the sail ten yards off the beach, and rowed ashore. I hopped out onto the sand at 7:05--just 5 minutes past the time I'd told my wife I'd be back for supper.

    If that's my last sail of the year, it'll be a good one to end on.

    0BF0010B-7068-47F4-9446-1E2305D8F8B4.jpgThe rest of our fleet at Big Lagoon. David Luckhardt’s CY is there as well as a Penobscot 14 and a one off carvel Jolly Boat. We had two days of clouds and fog with no wind. Finally the storm came in and brought us some much needed rain and some wind to sail in.

    That cat ketch makes me want to run away to sea. What a lovely little boat.

    A couple days ago I tried to catch a salmon, no luck. Fishing on the Columbia River near lyle WA, maybe mile river 173 or so.

    The Honda 2.3 was a project last week, not yacht finish yet, but functional. I still have to build an off set hatch in the Lazerette and a sailing plug for the motorwell, copper bottom on the plug so the drinks will stay cold.

    The motor spins 360 in the well, epic maneuverability!

    I have been out on local waters of the Willamette River, near the falls, just south of Portland, where there is fascinating old industrial architecture:

    And I was lucky enough to pull off a post-equinox cruise for a few days in the Columbia River estuary. I even got lost, which on a falling tide can cause a little worry or embarasment.

    Very cool looking space. Is it an old lock? I like to explore such places although I must admit they give me the creeps.

    This evenings jaunt.

    The local fishing fleet.



    View down the bay.



    Squadron of cormorant... fish eaters, divers, here in great numbers now.

    Is that the old Oregon City lock? I've heard they're talking about trying to restore it. Have you been out to Lafayette Locks on the Yamhill? I don't think you can get in with anything but a canoe or kayak, but it was pretty neat last time I was there.

    Yes, it is the old lock that gets you around the falls. There is a boom in the water stopping boats from going in there. I know there have been some studies done about reopening it, but I have to image the cost benefit ratio would be a tough one to justify. It's mostly small motor boats going up and down river. A while further upriver it gets real shallow. Perfect for a canoe or maybe a rowing craft...

    Great area up there! Channels gouged out of the silt that settled out from the Missoula Floods. Have you rowed around on the Tualatin? Pretty silted up now but the lower stretches have some pretty areas. Haven't been ther in years. Don't know if you can fow from the Willamette and get up into the Tualatin these days? I've canoed down at high water (, but never tried going up. That lower stretch still looks pretty swift (OK...60 years ago).

    Lovely photos in this thread. Looking at the locations I'm struck by many memories of boating in New England, Mid Atlantic and the PNW, each with their own distinct water. That photo of the fishing fleet in NY brings back such a strong remembrance of the particular smell and feel of that part of the Atlantic coast, so very different than here.
