Great place to take a slow easy walk - take pictures - enjoy the sunsets. If you live in Seattle - going there at least once is important. Cool restaurants and other parks near by. Can bike - walk - drive - all works.

Last minute decision to find a charter for a few hours of fishing in the Puget Sound. Luckily we found a boat captain and caught 3 silver salmon. Beautiful day!
