Seabeck, Washington?

Just wondering if anyone from the forum passed through this nifty wee town on the Hood canal this past February. I was having a coffee at the local shop when around a half-dozen BMW touring riders pulled up....I drooled on a couple of their bikes whilst they were parked. I had the itch to get a bike back then and seeing those beautiful machines pushed me over the edge!
I am up that way almost every February to perform in Seattle & teach drumming at the Seabeck conference there. Celtic Arts School & concert
If any of you are around the first weekend in Feb 2011, p/m me and I'll buy you a coffee!

Cheers

Mike

If I ain't drummin'...I'd rather be ridin'!

Re: Seabeck, Washington?

Went through in August. Just me and the misses. Sorry.

Take care,
Chris

Havin' coffee at Barbies I guess.

Any more progress on the marina remodel?

My friend owns a lot overlooking Seabeck I have timber in Quilcene, on the other side of the canal.

Barbie's...that'd be the place.
The equipment for the marina was there last year, as were a couple of barges and tugs.
Reckon I'll see for myself in February. Love it there.
That part of the Kitsap Peninsula looks prime for riding!
Maybe some spring.....

Re: Seabeck, Washington?

The old marina was damaged in the "Big Blow" several years back. Hundreds of boats were damaged and scuttled. All that remained was a dilapidated bait store and gas pump.

Some LLC in California bought the place, tore down the bait house and is in the process of rebuilding a new marina complex. They are facing a myriad of problems, mostly related to the "Noble Savages" who claim ownership to every bird, bug, snail, clam and fish in the NW.

They can only do underwater construction between gooey duck clam season, salmon runs and countless other breeding cycle seasons.

Barbes is a cool place. Great breakfasts.

The US 101 loop goes around Olympic National Park.

Also go to Cape Flattery, the most NW point in the continential US.

Be sure to have gas! The Indian reservation has limited hours.
