Houseboats on Seattle’s Lake Union


Enjoyed a beautiful day in Seattle. First stop was along the east shore of Lake Union to catch this shot looking west at houseboats, the lake and Queen Anne Hill in the background just as the float plane was taking off. Had found a small open space between ample shrubbery to get a good view. The spot is near the water’s edge on Fairview Avenue East between E. Newton Street and East Boston Street. GPS coodinates: N 47, 38.2427; W 122, 19.7696.

I-90 to Seattle

Driving westbound on I-90 toward Seattle and wondering if the darkening sky portends rain. About to cross the Cle Elum River and just ahead is the exit to Roslyn, a small town on the east side of the Cascade Mountains that served as the fictional town of Cicely, Alaska in the long-running TV series “Northern Exposure” that ran for a total of 110 episodes from 1990 to 1995 on CBS.DSC_4758
