Dec 29, 2013 Locked in for Adventure The adventure we heading into the lake on THIS day is to visit the MOHAI (Museum of History and Industry). We invited family to join us. Pick-up at Bell Harbor below Pike Place Market, a sail out of Elliott Bay, around West Point and into the Cut to line-up for the Locks. We wait for the green light and enter as directed by the Lock Master. We enter the small Locks, tie to the cleat we are assigned. After all the boats are secured, the Lock doors close and the the water begins to rise. Depending on the tide, it is about a 14 foot ride UP! We visit with the boats near us. We exchange the ideas for plans and adventure. Some are returning to their home port, some heading to a boat yard for haul out, others are entering the lake to visit a restaurant. For us we're traveling to the museum. We leave the Locks and begin the passage into the lake. We raise bridges. We pass sections that remind us of the canals in Europe. We see the history and the future of boating in the view along the waters edge. Fishing boats, house boats, classics, high-tech, kayaks, canoes, barges, tugboats, and rowing shells are all around. Feels like a parade. Such a treat.
