How about an after school outing? Susan and I linked up with Leane and her dudes for a little photowalk and exploration at Seattle’s Gas Works Park. The park surrounds what is left of the old coal gasification plant on the north shore of Lake Union. Between 1906 and 1956 the machinery created gas from coal. After it shut down the city bought the site in 1962 and opened it as a city park in 1975.
Here are just a few images from our visit:
Of course we would need the sun to come out if we were to have any success at telling the time or date on the human sundial. Oh well, it was still a pretty cool place to poke around.
I guess if one were thinking about moving to Seattle it would be good to know this is what summer looks like around here. Light rain and 57 degrees…
Come to think of it, that is frequently what winter looks like too. Oh, and spring as well. Don’t despair though, autumn is usually really nice!
Well we had a great time goofing around at the park, then we ate some lunch and scampered out of town before the afternoon rush began.
Thanks for visiting my blog, until the next time…
