The Locks

With the prompt of the Entertainment book coupons, we headed out for another Argosy Cruise. This time we went around Lake Union through the Hiram Chittenden Locks and out to the Puget Sound. We got a glimpse of the houseboat Sleepless in Seattle was filmed on, some of the boats from The Deadliest Catch, and learn a little about the shipping industry out of the Seattle harbor. Seattle is the first choice in west coast ports for shipping since it is about 400 miles geographically closer to the Far East, saving about 1 day of fuel. We are very fortunate to live in the Pacific NW. Gorgeous landscapes of mountains and water and tons of fun and interesting things to do. And now for the photo summary!
