Snap of the day: South Lake Union Repair Project

We have been watching the construction around the lake all summer long. It has been fascinating to watch the bulldozers remove large sections of the earth and replace it with geofoam to prevent the shifting of the soil. Today marks the removal of the bridge, we watched in awe as large boats with cranes lumbered across the lake to do the heavy lifting. The bridge was removed swiftly, and now sits on the dock in front of the MOHAI. I imagine this might be one of the final stages of repair. According to Seattle Parks and Recreation when the project is complete the following items will have been repaired:

  • Replacing existing soil with lightweight geofoam under paved walkways along the western portion of the park “peninsula” west of MOHAI
  • Modifying bridge abutment.
  • Repairing the boardwalk between the bridge and the bulkhead
  • Reinstalling all paved walkways once the lightweight geofoam has been installed and the abutment modified

2nd Annual SLU Event

Get Out & Boat Calendar

SEATTLE – The Northwest Yacht Brokers Association is excited to host the second round of their Get Out & Boat Fest, to be held in Chandler’s Cove on

Saturday, June 24th from 11 AM  – 3 PM

This event was so popular last year the fleet has nearly doubled, offering 50 boat rides throughout the day.

Completely FREE to the public, the Fest aims to demonstrate the joy and feasibility of boating by getting people out on the water.

Attendees of all ages and experience levels are encouraged to ‘Seas the Day – Get Out & Boat!’ at this South Lake Union event. Fest-goers can experience the thrill of gliding across the water by taking a 45-minute boat ride around Lake Union.

Sailboats, power boats under 30’, cruisers and fishing trawlers will be available for rides, allowing attendees to tryout which boat best suits their lifestyle. Participants can learn new skills at hands-on docking, anchoring, technology, rigging and knot tying clinics with the guidance of industry professionals.

Boating seminars offered by marine experts will cover topics such as how to buy a boat, insider tips on boating safety, chartering a boat and salmon fishing in the San Juan Islands. Fest attendees can stroll the docks and visit booths that provide information on what it takes to get into boating, whether it be obtaining a WA State Boaters Card, learning how to finance and insure a boat, or the ins-and-outs of chartering and boat share.

This family-friendly event will also include a fun kids’ zone with toy boat building offered by the Center for Wooden Boats.

Enjoy live music provided by local musician and Jimmy Buffet-cover artist Dave Calhoun while grabbing a snack from a number of food carts. The second annual Get Out & Boat Fest aims to increase public awareness of boating by offering opportunities for people to get out on the water, experience boating firsthand, and educate and inform non-boaters so they can learn all about the boating lifestyle.

Noon in South Lake Union.

If you happen to live or work in the South lake Union area, you have no doubt experienced the hustle and bustle of the lunch crowd. Beginning at around 10 AM, the food trucks motor in, setting up in designated areas on almost every corner.The trucks offer everything from Hawaiian, Indian, Crepes, Vegan, Comfort food, Tacos, and Fried chicken. Many of the trucks boast clever names such as It’s Bao time, a truck serving up Taiwanese street food. Perhaps you enjoy a witty pun, and also Indian food-  then check out NaanSense. 

All this talk about food,  I am hungry! Now make me a sandwich, just kidding, run over to the food truck with the same name, and pick one  up! Now make me a sandwich  serves up specialty grilled sandwiches- just look for the truck with the Viking on the side. According to a recent Seattle Times article, there are more than 450 mobile food units in King County. Depending on the day of the week, there are a large variety of options, for even the pickiest, or most sensitive palettes.
