Melinda was driving Ella to a friend’s house late this morning and came upon a detour along a busy thoroughfare not far from our house, Montlake Boulevard. Intrigued by the reason, when she got home she asked if I wanted to walk with her to the site of the detour/construction to see what was going on. Off we went.
It’s probably about a mile from our house and it was a lovely fall Saturday in Seattle so we had a nice walk and chat. Then arriving, we started a conversation with a worker who explained that a pedestrian bridge was being built over the boulevard, one that would ultimately connect the remodeled University of Washington football stadium (barely visible on the right in today’s photo) and the under construction light rail station nearby to the university. It should be quite nice. And secure with that knowledge, we started the walk back home.
Did I mention it’s been a pretty laid back day for us?
