For the past couple of weeks I’ve been gunkholing my way south.
Gunkholing is a boating term referring to a type of cruising in shallow or shoal water, meandering from place to place, spending the nights in coves. The term refers to the gunk, or mud, typical of the creeks, coves, marshes, sloughs, and rivers that are referred to as gunkholes.
First stop after leaving the San Juan Islands was Port Townsend where I stayed at Mystery Bay State Park and Point Hudson Marina
Next I visited Port Ludlow and then Blake Island State Park.
Further south I stopped at Gig Harbor to do some shopping and proper disposal of garbage, recycling and the potty holding tank.
I am now in South Puget Sound at Oro Bay, Anderson Island.
The prior weeks had amazing fall weather with lots of sun and cool/warm afternoons. The morning fog has at time been thick. Now weather is returning back to PNW fall with clouds and rain.
