to the ballard locks we go

Last weekend the weather was amazing and we couldn't just waste the day running errands. So we decided to hit up the Ballard Locks for a little bit of hometown tourism, sunshine and live music. It was so enjoyable to just wander around the park with Solei, listen to the jazz band, watch the boats and see a few salmon travel through the fish ladder. For those that don't know, the Ballard Locks is the place boats, barges, yachts, and other floating vehicles come to safely travel from salt to fresh water or vice versa. Cheers to playing tourist (again)! 

The water level has been adjusted and the boat parade is ready to exit...

Happy weekend everyone! 


  1. Looks like fun! Btw, great photography skills.

  2. your pup is so cute! I haven't been to the Ballard Locks in forever although I'm in Ballard all the time to enjoy all the yummy restaurants. :) My dad took us there too often when I was younger so I haven't thought about going there now as an adult! You picked a great day to go though. thank goodness we are getting more sun!
