We have been making frequent trips to Seattle from our Bainbridge Island moorage. Today we rode the ferry over early to spend the day with good friends, and one of our stops was the new sculpture garden at the north end of Seattle's downtown. Just completed, this new park covers about eight acres, divided into three portion by a major city street and a mainline railroad. Broad walkways and lawns bridge the traffic, so that as you walk the garden, you are hardly aware of the cars and trains.
This large, red-orange sculpture by Alexander Calder is perhaps the best sited of the artworks. In reality, the site and the vista are the most impressive features of the garden.
