Excerpt: Kirkland, Washington – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Kirkland in 1912, at the modern-day intersection of Fourth Avenue and First Street overlooking Lake WashingtonThe land around Lake Washington to the east of Seattle was first settled by Native Americans. English settlers arrived in the late 1860s, when the McGregor and Popham families built homesteads in what is now the Houghton neighborhood. Four miles to the north people also settled near what is now called Juanita Bay, a favored campsite of the Natives because a wild potato, “wapatos”, thrived there. The Curtis family arrived in the area in the 1870s, followed by the French family in 1872. The Forbes family homesteaded what is now Juanita Beach Park in 1876, and settled on Rose Hill in 1877. Gradually, additional people settled in the area, and by the end of the 1880s, a small number of logging, farming and boat-building communities were established. In 1886, Peter Kirk, a British-born enterprising businessman seeking to expand the familys Moss Bay steel production company, moved to Washington after hearing that iron deposits had been discovered in the Cascade mountain range. Other necessary components such as limestone, needed in steel smelting, were readily available in the area. Further yet, a small number of coalmines (a required fuel source for steel mills) had recently been established nearby in Newcastle and train lines were already under construction. Plans were also underway to build the Lake Washington Ship Canal. Map of Kirkland showing various notable locations.Kirk realized that if a town were bui… More:

$4.99


Circumnavigation of the earth, by Bill and Normandie Doar aboard their 36-foot custom steel French sailing sloop Advent II, started in 2003. They sailed south from North Carolina, into the Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean, then westward through the Panama Canal, across the Pacific Ocean, across Australia via the Coral Sea, the Arafura Sea, the Timor Sea, and finally across the Indian Ocean to the shores of South Africa in December 2004.As their cruising kitty dwindled, their shared plans changed. Normandie would resume her work as a nurse in North Carolina and attend school to become a nurse anesthetist. This plan would provide funds for Bill to complete the trip. Although Bill was competent to sail alone, the precarious and lonely 5,400-mile ocean crossing aboard Advent II to reach Trinidad, cross her outgoing track, and complete the circumnavigation would not be wise without a first mate. Bill’s daughter Grayson planned to get married during Easter 2005 in Charleston, SC. Bill had promised to give the bride away, a commitment that dictated a tight schedule for the Atlantic crossing. At Trinidad, Bill would haul the boat into storage and fly home for the wedding. He would return and leisurely sail singlehandedly north from the Caribbean islands to North Carolina.I was approaching retirement after a career as a community college professor. My youth had been spent reading ocean voyaging books and dreaming of making an ocean crossing. I sailed most of my life in North Carolina coastal waters, currently enjoying my boat Irish Mist, a 32-foot sailing sloop. Although I had sailed offshore many times, I had spent only a few nights on ocean passages.A colleague, who was following Bill and Normandie’s trek via the internet, suggested I contact Bill about joining Advent II as crew. After some research, I realized the couple was my neighbor in Chocowinity, NC. A friend knew them to be quality people, emergency medical technicians, and members of Trinity Episcopal Church.
