The Seattle Streetcar came purring around the track at South Lake Union while I was out walking. It was separated from the pedestrian walkway I was on by only a foot-wide bedding of flowering lavender. The brightly colored streetcars started rolling through the Cascade neighborhood at the south end of Lake Union last December and were lovingly dubbed the SLUT, for South Lake Union Trolley. Sacrebleu! The cars come in Jolly Rancher colors of red, purple, and orange, and I especially like the photo-graphics of the Space Needle featured on the exteriors (left rear in this photo). Input from neighbors in Capitol Hill, Fremont, Ballard, and the Univeristy District is currently being sought about planned streetcar route expansions through those areas. Hop on board and REALLY expand the route to Melbourne, Australia, where we can wish John congrats on two years of Melbourne in Photos today!
