A Little Steampunk Fix
No soft and fluffy yarn and crochet in today's post.
Instead, I thought I'd give you a little bit of rust or you might say,
Steampunk heaven in Seattle.
Welcome to Gasworks Park
When we moved to Seattle, the first time I noticed this park was from a boat on
We were out with friends touring the area in a boat where the floating homes are,
and I saw this beautiful hilly, grassy area with some kind of strange, rusty
looking industrial stuff.
In the summer, people are out flying kites, having picnics or just hanging
out on the grass here. It's such a beautiful view of the city.
I happend to drive over on a cloudy day, so the views of the city were
not so great. Still, in January I met a few people out with their
dogs throwing frisbees!
The grass is lovely, even in winter, and there are paths all the way
to the top of the hill.
This is what I found when I got to the top.
A beautiful Sundial!
I had a great time just walking around,
so many interesting things to see.
So, I'll leave the rest up to you if you want to know a little more
about this historical place. Just click on the link I put in the
beginning of my post.
If anything…just go to the link and scroll down to see a really
cool panorama view of this place in the summer…it's a cool shot!
I hope you enjoyed my little
Steampunk fun today.
I'm now off to work on a new
baby afghan I'm crocheting for a friend.
We've not been to Gasworks for years, not since the kids were small. So, thanks for the reminder of what a fun place it is! Great photos, too!
It must have been so much fun to explore here.
Happy day to you!
Have a wonderful rest of the week!
You are very happy in your new city it shows!!!
