Ballard Locks

 

 

The Ballard locks are a great destination any time and in any weather.  The locks connect the salt water of Puget Sound to the fresh water of Lake Union.  It is fun to watch the boats as they transit the locks.   For photographers, the locks and the adjoining Carl English gardens offer a treasure trove of scenery.

Center for Wooden Boats

 

This is an interesting outdoor museum located at Seattle's Lake Union Park and adjacent to the historic Naval Reserve building. Its delightful collection of historical boats is a treat to look at and to photograph.  You can rent some of the restored boats as well as rent a model boat to sail in Lake Union Park's model boat pond.  This is one of the best places to experience the beauty of Lake Union.
