Artist’s Date: Julie’s Tour of Seattle

Julie took me on a tour of her favorite Seattle haunts on Saturday.  We started at Carkeek Park.

And ended the day at the Magnolia marina:


We spent most of the afternoon enjoying the delights along Highland Drive at the top of Queen Ann Hill.  Parsons Garden, a lovely memorial garden, is at the intersection of 8th Place, 7th and Highland Drive:

With a saucer magnolia tree that took my breath away:

I was so awestruck by the view from Queen Ann’s promenade that I forgot to take a photo of Elliott Bay.  So, I cheated and went back on Easter Sunday:

I did get a shot of the Space Needle from Kerry Park, a tiny park that is a photographer’s favorite at 2nd and Highland Drive:

For those of you new to my website, an artist’s date is a great way to rebound from burn out or to heal our souls from abuse.

  1. Wow that picture of the Magnolia Marina is incredible, and I need to have a copy – for my very own! Beautiful! They all are (the photos that is) but that specific shot, just sings to my soul! I had a marvelous time on Saturday, we must do it again, there are so many more beautiful places in this magnificent City!

    Julie !
