Port Gamble S’Klallam’s main canoe hosting event is planned for Wednesday, but a few canoes are already trickling in to Point Julia.
According to canoe family organizer Laura Price, canoes from Quinalt and the Hoh River on the Washington coast have already arrived, along with a canoe from Ahousat on the west side of Vancouver Island.
Another seven canoes departed Port Townsend shortly after noon today, and are expected to arrive at Point Julia this evening. Port Gamble S’Klallam expects to host about 22 total canoes on July 20.
