Rent a Pirate Pond Boat from Center for Wooden Boats to sail in Lake Union Park’s Model Boat Pond. These 39-inch pond boats are scale models of the R-Boat Pirate which is on exhibit on their docks at South Lake Union. Sailing these miniature racing yachts is a great way to learn the basic concepts of sailing while enjoying time at the park.

Global transactions are significantly different and more complex than domestic deals. From currency issues and financing to visa and tax laws, working with a REALTOR® who knows how to handle these differences can make or break a real estate transaction. Because of these nuances, it is essential to work with a knowledgeable and trusted professional, such as Laurie Way, a CIPS designee.
What is the CIPS Designation?
A Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) designee has undergone specialized training to complete global transactions seamlessly and with reduced risk
The CIPS designation is the only international designation recognized by the National Association of REALTORS®. Only REALTORS® who have completed the coursework and demonstrated considerable experience in global business can call themselves a CIPS designee, and use the name and logo.
My certification is valuable because I have training in:
Currency and exchange rate issues
Regional market conditions
I can now help clients do business in over 45 countries, and ensure that the client will receive the same level of service no matter where the real estate transaction is.**
If you live or work around South Lake Union, and if you utilize the park at the North end of the lake, you have likely noticed some major renovations happening. I have been mesmerized by the big white hunks of foam visible from my office, and had to take a trip closer to investigate. I marveled at the apparent strength of the construction workers who were able to lift a block the size of a small home with little effort. As I watched them work I did a little research on Geofoam, and found it fascinating enough to share, because certainly anyone who has seen the stuff, has surely been at least a little curious. Geofoam is a lightweight fill material often used as a soil replacement in projects where erosion and shifting become issues.
Geofoam applications include:
Highways and Roads
and so many more..
Geofoam Advantages over other Fill Materials
Lightweight – Minimize preloading, surcharging and staged construction
Weather Resistant – Withstands freeze-thaw cycles, moisture and road salts,
Doesn’t Settle – Less structural inconsistencies
Insect and Mold Resistant – Will not sustain mold or mildew growth, termite / ant repellant additive available
Manufactured to Meet Your Job Specifications – Multiple densities, various block sizes available
Ease of Installation – Lightweight, no heavy equipment needed, cuts easily with a hot wire or saw
Environmentally Friendly – 100% Recyclable, No HCFCs or Formaldehyde
The following is a bit about the project and it’s expected completion date.
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.
