Well, wonder no more.
Writer Richard Blumenthal will share everything you want to know about the name game in Washington's maritime history. The free talk is at 7 p.m. Oct. 9 at Everett's Milltown Sailing Association clubhouse, 410 14th St. It will be followed by a question-and-answer session.
Blumenthal, a lifelong boater who has written several books, transcribed the journals of Peter Puget and other early explorers to get a better sense of their efforts, their hardships, the places they visited and why they chose the names.
