More Pics From The Seattle Trip

I don’t feel like writing much (getting a bit tired these days), but want to share a few photos from the trip down to Lake Union. We had multiple talented photographers aboard and managed to exchange photos between everybody at the end of the trip.We completely lucked out on weather too. Both before and after, we’ve had nothing but rain and storms.

And despite the computer crashing at the Space Needle and a fireworks show which was essentially run manually, the party on board was a blast anyway. We had more friends of mine rafted up with us in a 34′ Defever and our view of the city was spectacular.

There was air traffic on the lake nearly continuously. My understanding is that they dodge boats fairly well, but I certainly gave them a wide berth anyway.

Tug Margaret Ann was hauling a crane barge through the Montlake Cut.

“KJ on steroids” was how the captain put it. There is a bit of resemblance, don’t you think?
