Well it's that time of year again for the Blue Angels and the excitement of the hydro races on Lake Washington.
Im hoping to get down to the lake and out on my kayak to get a good position, but I also havent been out flying myself lately so it'll be a tough decision as to what to do as I'll be too worn out to do any flying if I spend the time needed out on the lake paddling in what will be somewhat rough water what with all the boating that will be going on.

Anyway I wanted to post a link to Kiro7's Seafair section so you'uns can watch the show right here.

You can also watch the hydros too! Just navigate to the Seafair page and then click on the link in the list on the left side of page.


And a shot I took from my kayak a few years ago.

Was fantastic as it usually is, I watched on TV this year as I just didnt feel like fighting the crowd. It's a mess if ya dont get in on it early, and better if ya got a good size boat and get on the log boom.
But then ya got the drinker/boater idiots to deal with.:roll:

And it's a workout and a half going in my kayak, got to put in too far away cause ya cant get into Seaward park once it's full. So I put in a few miles south at a public ramp, and paddle up. But Like I said, your worn out at the end of the day so I wasnt up to it.

You can also watch videos of highlights and such there at Kiro 7.
