The Tillicum Indians operate a sweat lodge, I have this on my "to do" list for my next visit to Washington. While I am waiting to have that experience, I am recalling the taste of the specially prepared salmon and the magical atmosphere of native chanting, prayer and dance that accompanied this experience. Just pop over to Pier 55, and take a one hour ferry ride across the Sound, with the crisp air rushing past you and the smell of the salt water bringing you back to your origins. The foods are specially prepared and not the normal fare one might expect in a restaurant, but then you are immersing yourself into the experience of another culture. I can hardly wait to do this again, but they do close for the winter. I hope to take the whole family to Blake Island, the Tillicum experience, when they open in the spring
