A Little Salmon Shall Lead Them. . .
Photo & Text Copyright 2006 Seattle Daily Photo. All rights reserved, including reproduction or republishing.This skipper and his crew have just come through the locks in the Lake Washington Ship Canal between the salt waters of Puget Sound and the fresh waters of Lake Union and further on Lake Washington. If you look closely or click on this photo to enlarge it you will see a salmon jumping just ahead of the bow. Perhaps it has been cavorting with dolphins and wants to imitate them. This beautiful 1922 wooden boat might be heading for the Center for Wooden Boats at the south end of Lake Union (a great place to rent a sailboat, BTW). For a detailed history of this classic vessle, its incredible features and more complete view of her from the starboard side while on the low end of the locks click on More Seattle Stuff.
