“The Courtship of Eddie’s Father”
Feeling like a modern day Bill Bixby in “The Courtship of Eddies Father” I spent the day in the town of Snohomish, Washington peeling in and out of river Eddies in preparation for my first attempt of “Deception Pass” in a few months. The river proved as tricky as young Eddie, tipping my board a couple of times and giving me a refreshing taste of ice-cold glacial waters from mountain run-off and 4″ of snow that blanketed the area just a few hours earlier. I’m used to the salty, nasal cleansing waters of the Puget Sound, but welcomed a little fresh water this time that left the faint odor of wet dog in my nostrils.
I absolutely love the little town of Snohomish Washington and the incredible, nice people that live and visit there. It’s hard not to meet a local here who won’t engage you in a great conversation. Can’t wait to get back there and work this fine river again.
