At the edge of Seattle is the Ballard Locks, where Lake Washington meets the Puget Sound – the connection point between fresh water and the Ocean. The waterways through Seattle are 22 feet above sea level, and kids and adults are fascinated by the boats that flow through endlessly. There’s always much to do – bridges to cross, waterfalls to watch, and fish to look for. Unfortunately, there were not many Salmon in the fish latter, which can have thousands during the summer months. But that didn’t dampen Lexa’s love for the locks.
