Today was PARK(ing) Day–several metered parking spots were transformed into temporary public parks. We rode to the Ballard Library to check out the Feet First park, but it was a bit disappointing. However, the destination gave me an opportunity to look for covered parking spots…but I found none.
I wish we’d be bolder and travelled all the way downtown because the other ones sounded really cool:
Anything goes in these tiny green spaces. Come and see how Cascade Bicycle Club has decked out our space at side of Union Street between 2nd Ave and 3rd Ave. Then make your way around to the parking spots taken over by Cascade Land Conservancy, Transportation Choices Coalition, Feet First, Streets For All Seattle and Zip Car, all are within a few blocks of our space. You might stumble upon bocce ball, mini-golf, croquet, and delicious coffee drinks.
We were very lucky with the weather today so after a nap we headed back out to the annual sausage party…or as it’s properly called, The Great Wallingford Wurst Festival. No bike racks at the church, but we found an available street sign beneath a tree. It started raining after a couple hours so we didn’t stick around long enough to see the Great Sausage Wizard (not sure if that’s his real title) who knighted Brandt with his golden sausage on a stick last year. So glad we biked instead of walked–getting rained on for five minutes on the way home is so much better than 20.
