|West Seattle Ferry|
Normally when I head down toward the West Seattle Ferry dock I take a right and go into Lincoln park, the forested area in the picture below, to ride the waterfront trail that goes from asphalt to gravel and offers some variety while giving spectacular views of Puget Sound and the Olympic range.
Where leaving late came back to bite me was that although I had plenty of light while riding from the Southworth dock to the park, by the time I arrived light was starting to fade.
I did, in the end, manage to get the tent set up and since it was so dark I just went to sleep. It would have been nice to have a campfire to sit reflectively by but I didn't have the room to bring wood with me-nor would I have wanted the weight- and I didn't get to the park early enough to scope out if there was a place to buy/collect some. When I got up in the morning I simply packed up and headed back home.

After the fact I looked at the Manchester Park website and realized there were lots of things I could have done, hiking, wandering the beach, historic buildings etc.
