A Little Steampunk Fix

Hi everyone!  

No soft and fluffy yarn and crochet in today's post.  

Instead, I thought I'd give you a little bit of rust or you might say, 

Steampunk heaven in Seattle. 


Welcome to Gasworks Park



When we moved to Seattle,  the first time I noticed this park was from a boat on 

Lake Union.  




We were out with friends touring the area in a boat where the floating homes are, 

and I saw this beautiful hilly, grassy area with some kind of strange, rusty

looking industrial stuff. 




In the summer, people are out flying kites, having picnics or just hanging 

out on the grass here.  It's such a beautiful view of the city. 




I happend to drive over on a cloudy day, so the views of the city were 

not so great.  Still, in January I met a few people out with their 

dogs throwing frisbees!  




The grass is lovely, even in winter, and there are paths all the way 

to the top of the hill. 

This is what I found when I got to the top. 


A beautiful Sundial! 







I had a great time just walking around, 

so many interesting things to see. 








So, I'll leave the rest up to you if you want to know a little more 

about this historical place.  Just click on the link I put in the 

beginning of my post. 

If anything…just go to the link and scroll down to see a really 

cool panorama view of this place in the summer…it's a cool shot! 




 I hope you enjoyed my little 

Steampunk fun today. 


I'm now off to work on a new 

baby afghan I'm crocheting for a friend. 

:-)

Hi Becca,

We've not been to Gasworks for years, not since the kids were small. So, thanks for the reminder of what a fun place it is! Great photos, too!

Great photos Becca. I just love Gasworks Park. So much eye candy for the photographer, including the view of the city. Hope you are enjoying the rain as much as we are. We sure needed it. Are you seeing buds on your plants yet? We are. Exciting!

Caterina Giglio said...

love seeing your work and process... and sometimes it is good to embrace what comes naturally... what would happen if you "stayed inside the lines"?
