Things to Know While Circumnavigating the Island

Thanks again to Everyone’s Travel Club, who circumnavigated Mercer Island in a kayak and then blogged it in three parts.

Highlights:

  • Total trip time: 6 hours, actual paddling time: 4.5 hours.
  • The total distance of my route was about 15 miles.
  • Recommended route, if starting at Seward Park: counterclockwise
  • Recommended lunch spot: Luther Burbank Park

Here’s one of many photos from the posts. To any other kayakers out there: what are your favorite spots or routes on the Island?
