We started by climbing 103 steps at Day Street and admiring what may be the cleanest underpass area in the city.
At the top of the hill, we saw some large homes,
The bridge was built in 1940 and was the world's first reinforced concrete floating bridge and the largest floating structure ever built. The tunnels were the largest diameter soft-earth tunnels when completed in 1940.
We walked the winding boulevard through Colman Park (an Olmsted Legacy Park), observing a large community garden
before coming to the Ellsworth Storey Cottages National Historic District. "Between 1910 and 1915, Storey designed a set of cottages near Colman Park on Lake Washington Boulevard. Although modest, and built as a developmental enterprise, these houses were more influential than many of his more impressive works. These houses, looking much like bungalows, used generous amounts of local lumber and had wide projecting eaves covering ample porches. This method of building suited the house’s natural surroundings.
Storey was perhaps the first Seattle architect to integrate directly local materials with architectural design. This practice, later known as "regionalism," was highly influential in Seattle architecture of the middle- and late-twentieth century". (from linked page above)
We continued on to Mount Baker Park and back north to Day Street, observing staircases and shore view access points along the way.
Saint Clement's Episcopal Church, Sponge (language classes for kids) and a "No Camping" sign which has been modified to say "Snow Camping" - we did not see any campers.
