Wonderful weather here. Sunny, warm... warm breezes. When we have this is the kind of weather I think all Northwest families should own a boat, know someone who owns a boat, or when all else fails use the public transportation boats. We don't own a boat, we know a few boat owners but today we used the Alki water taxi as our boat. This boat transits between downtown Seattle and Alki beach. There are no lines, its a 15 minute ride providing great views of the city and Port of Seattle. A super easy way to spend the afternoon.
