There were big doings at the grand opening of Seattle's new Lake Union Park on the waterfront at the south end of Lake Union. I showed you an in-progress view here before. It was a perfect sunny day with temps in the 70s and people flocked over the arched pedestrian bridge and came via bike, boat and streetcar to enjoy boat rides, a farmers market, sailing model boats on the new circular pond, watching kayak building demonstrations at the Center for Wooden Boats, seeing a scale model of the Gates Foundation nearing completion at Seattle Center, touring historic ships, hearing the Husky marching band as it made its way through the whole campus, enjoying live performances of Seattle musicians, dancing with Bo the Scarf Man, watching Frye Bread being made, eating Molly Moon ice cream, hoppin' at an all ages dance under the big top and much more. I took this shot from Queen Anne Hill prior to going down for a close look at all the features.

Wasn't it just a perfect day??? I started out at the Festa Italia @ Seattle Center before dropping into the madhouse grand opening of our new park.

And now, our rain is back ... what a difference a day makes!

Looking good. I like the tilt-shift here; this photo really lends itself well for this. Looks like a tiny toy Lake Union.
