The Snohomish River flows into the bay to the north and is border on the west by Jetty Island. During low tide the water recedes revealing old wood pylons and sandy bottom. Plenty of wildlife can be scene here.
Remnants of Everett, Wa history as a "Mill Town" from the 20th century still dot the shoreline landscape were once lumber and shingle mills and floating log booms provided an econimical boom to the growing city, which saw its population triple from less than 8,000 in 1900 to nearly 25,000 in 1910. Everett gloried in its "Mill Town" reputation, which was further enhanced when the massive Weyerhaeuser Mill B opened on the river front in 1915.
