Seafair Sunday - Halfway Around the Lake
Started somewhat early for the half-lake circuit, BGT to Bothell, then cross at Wayne Golf Course to 100th and down to Kirkland, through Bellevue, across the slough and I-90 bridge over Mercer Island and then across Lake Washington, before heading home through the Arboretum. No coyotes this time, unlike earlier this summer. 37.8 miles today, and 1794.7 miles YTD.
Lots of crowds today along west shore of Mercer Island, and even some with lawn and camp chairs on the bridge in anticipation of the boat races and Blue Angels. 'Official' Blue Angel souvenirs for sale at exorbitant prices at the I-90 overlook! Here are some photos of the log boom with the hydros warming up, plus the Montlake Bridge both east and west.
