The Gang Heads to Gas Works

The one day Momo had a previous engagement so Joel rounded up the gang and we did a little more exploring.  We headed to another place close to the water called Gas Works.  Gas Works is a Park in Seattle on the site of a former gas plant.  There are definitely remnants of the plant but thankfully no odor.  It is a great little park and there are plenty of areas for kids to play.  Also, we saw slack liners (tight rope walkers) and L.A.R.P.ers (Live Action Role Players).  This particular group was dressed in armor and looked medieval.  And so another journey in Seattle was a success.

 (Lots of graffiti and a few squatters, although no photos of them)

 (The battle has begun.  Although we didn't see any battles, mainly just 2 people fighting at a time.)
