Thursday/ dinner in Ballard

I had dinner in Ballard with Bill and Dave, and the pictures are from Bergen Place Park – the triangular site between Leary Avenue, 22nd Avenue NW, and Market Street.  The ‘trees’ are artist Jenn Lee Dixon’s ‘Witness Trees’.   Bergen (in Norway) is one of Seattle’s international sister cities, and the mural leads me to believe the first Norskamerikanere (Norwegian Americans) arrived here in 1869.  Some eight centuries after Bergen’s founding in 1070 !
