Silverdale waterfront gets nod on local sailing blog

Three Sheets Northwest highlights Silverdale this week in its regular “In Migael’s Wake” segment, which takes a look at local cruising destinations around the sound.

Here’s what Migael Scherer has to say about the stop:

The Silverdale Waterfront Park is the main attraction for boaters visiting the far north end of Dyes Inlet. Stout wooden floats attached to steel-and-concrete pilings extend into deep water from a tidy park. Silverdale’s charming Old Town is a block away, a sleepy reminder of the days when this was a logging and poultry-producing area.

Poulsbo webcam is live

If you haven’t seen it yet, Poulsbo has its very own webcam overlooking Liberty Bay.

Actually it doesn’t belong to the city, it’s located on Longship Marine’s building (remember Lois Hillman and her venture into the marine supply world? I wrote about her back in May 2010).

Anyway, according Three Sheets Northwest, a sailing blog I follow, sailor Bruce Blumenstein is the mastermind behind the installation of the camera. He moved himself, and his boat, from Oregon and landed in Poulsbo’s Liberty Bay. After settling in, he decided he’d like to have an eye on his boat and thought of the idea to station a webcam overlooking the Bay so he, along with anyone else, could see what was happening in snapshots of real time.

Read about how the camera came to be over at the Three Sheets’ “On Watch” post.

The Long Ship Marine webcam joins the other livecam we often see referenced on the local weather stations, and of course at kitsapsun.com — Dr. Dale Ireland’s cam that overlooks Silverdale and the Olympic Mountains.
