I went down to Lake Union on late Saturday afternoon to check out how Lake Union Park was coming along. (Also: Google is slated to build new Seattle campus buildings starting in 2017 there, a stone’s throw from the Lake). The park looks OK; I would say it still needs some big trees, though. The pond and surroundings with the Canadian geese is more or less under control. (The geese are notorious for making a big mess with their droppings!).
It was nice to catch two floatplanes on the maneuvering on the lake, one from Kenmore Air, and one from the local TV station.
