Seattle Architectural Tour

The Seattle Architecture Foundation hosts many fantastic tours where you can become a tourist in your own city.  I was lucky enough to jump onto a tour with the local group Creative Spirits PMC Guild when they had a cancellation.  The tour was delightful and a fantastic opportunity to practice leading lines in my photographs.  I took SO many photographs and wanted to share most of them with you.  Although, I didn’t want to overwhelm you.  So, I’ve created several collages of the many buildings.  I hope these inspire you to learn more about your hometown or local city.  Go on, help your local economy.

Kayak: Lake Union

Kayaked around lake union and toward Ballard.  Had a grand time and got caught in a circle of probably 100+ sailboats.  It was windy and hard work, but definitely worth the trip.

Crossing the lake through the sailboats was very exciting, especially when a few had to adjust their sails to recapture the wind.  Hearing the sails rip against the power of the wind and seeing them race from port to starbord of the tiny boats to ensure they didn’t tip was fascinating and thrilling.

Ever seen Gas Works Park from the water?  Amazing, rusty & industrial!

I highly recommend seeing the world from the view of a kayak.  It’s reasonable to rent a kayak for a couple hours and there are many places around the Puget Sound to rent kayaks.
