Re: Cruising: Jedidiah Island
Have to chime in that Jedidiah is one of my favorite places! First went there by kayak back in 99, and stayed two nights in Deep Bay last summer on Aeolus. If ever there is a testament to the benefits of land preservation, this is a shining example.
Quick story: My young boys and a friend would swim all around Deep Bay, and eventually found a few driftwood logs on the beach that were like surf boards. They then laid down on those and paddled around for what seemed like hours. They were fish! Jedidiah is just far enough north to have warm water, though not quite Desolation Sound.
And the hike to the peaks is a must. As of last summer, the containers were over filled with paper and so they were spilling out the messages people had left over the years. Sort of a shame. But inevitable. Don't know that anyone has the job of dealing with it.
My family will be stopping there again when we bring Aeolus back south from Desolation Sound to Bainbridge. Can't wait to see the meadow, Home Bay, and all the beauty of Jedidiah. Thank you to everyone who made this park possible!
