It's Captain's #FunFactFriday. The Hiram M. Chittenden Locks - Ballard Locks will be 100 years old next year. The "Ballard Locks", as they are known locally, connect fresh and salt waters, holding back the flood of an enormous water basin (Lake Union, Lake Washington and Lake Sammamish). The fish ladder at the locks provides access for large runs of salmon returning to their native streams along with a front-row seat for the people of Seattle and visitors to watch them and the sea lions who prey on them.

Calling all of our Seattle, Washington neighbors. Are you familiar with the Seattle Audubon Society? They have fantastic bird watching field trips.http://www.seattleaudubon.org/…/G…/GoBirding/FieldTrips.aspx
Stop by Captains and pick up a bird watching guide or waterproof notebook for your excursion. We also sell a variety of binoculars perfect for birdwatching.
