Gas Works Park

The park, the site of an old gasification plant, offers spectacular views via a large, steep, grassy hill in the middle of the park from which you can see the Olympic Mountains to the West and the Cascade Mountains to the east.

Exploring Lakes Union and Washington

The Puget Sound is great to explore, the two lakes are some of the best on-the-water experiences you can have in the world and though a powerboat was odd to get used to for us sailors (well one of us at least), cranking up the engine and doing 40 knots down the coast was pretty awesome.
