Seattle Seafair=Traditional state fair – livestock + boat racing + air shows

It was awesome! We packed up a picnic blanket and headed into Seattle to enjoy the annual Seafair. Not knowing what to expect, I was cautiously optimistic that we would have a good time. When we got there we were bombarded with the smell of french fries, turkey legs, and kettle corn. After making our rounds in the food section, we settled into a spot to watch the airshows and races. First up was this neat little red plane. He did lots of twisting and turning and free falling. It was fun to watch and at the same time I was terrified he was going to crash.

Up next: These little boat races. There were like 15 of these guys all racing at one time. We enjoyed watching these guys!

The next airshow lasted for a while. These guys were awesome! There were several times I was sure they would crash into each other as they crisscrossed through the sky. They sorta reminded me of the Aggie Band performing. I was a little too enthralled with their performance to get any good pictures :/

Lastly came the formula one racing. I’m still not sure exactly how these guys race. Their was never a formal start that I know of. But whatever, they were entertaining none the less.

We really enjoyed Seafair and I can see us making many more trips out to this event! Maybe next time Koda can come up for it; I know he’d love it!

Until next time,

“We know that God is everywhere; but certainly we feel His presence most when His works are on the grandest scale spread before us; and it is in the unclouded night-sky, where His worlds wheel their silent course, that we read clearest His infinitude, His omnipotence, His omnipresence.” Charlotte Brontë in Jane Eyre.

three quick comments about the trip:

1. if there is snow on the ground, don’t think the lake is warm enough for swimming
2. be careful on the way down or you’ll slip, fall, ruin your tights, and cut your knee up
3. God makes pretty things
