Yesterday I joined my friend Mark and his dad, visiting from Tucson, while they moved Mark's boat. The boat had been on display at last weekend's Wooden Boat Festival - http://www.cwb.org/attend-2009-lake-union-wooden-boat-festival - at the Center for Wooden Boats at the south end of Lake Union.

From the south end of Lake Union we motored up the lake to the Fremont Bridge at the entrance to the Ship Canal, through the Ballard Locks, around West Point to Elliot Bay, and then on to Mark's mooring at the south end of Harbor Island. Though there was lots of wind the tide was against us so we ended up motoring for about and hour to speed things up a bit.

Approaching the Fremont Bridge.

...and under the bridge we go!

Going through the locks.

Sailing at about mid-channel on Puget Sound.
