Yeah, I was at Tolmie a while back when the tide was out. I didn't have a kayak with me, but I see what you're saying about having to carry the boat to the water. The carrying part doesn't bother me, but I have to wonder how solid that goo might be. I didn't have the right foot attire to give it a try.
Thanks for the other suggestions. Maybe I'll get around to doing some more looking around, but right now I've sort of changed my plans. I'm going to give one of our local lakes a look for somewhere different to paddle. So anyone who has any experience on Riffe Lake, I'd be interested to hear about it.
About 99% of my paddling is on the Columbia River, which is great, but every now and then a little variety would be nice. There are a lot of places around Puget Sound, or Hood Canal that I would like to go to, but it is at least a two, or three hour drive and I'd rather be paddling than driving for those hours. But I try to keep an open mind.
