Ballard Locks | Seeing.Thinking.Drawing



The Seattle City Sketchers group met this previous Sunday on the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks (aka Ballard Locks), which separates the contemporary waters of Lake Union and Lake Washington to the east from the tidal waters of Puget Sound to the west. We’ve met right here earlier than, in August of 2019. This time, I selected to attract the bigger of the 2 locks, starting when it was closed and ending with it open and accepting vessels small and enormous, in from the west. Due to the fixed motion, it was potential to merely counsel the boat visitors.

A part of the Ballard Locks advanced is the Carl S. English Botanical Backyard, by which is sited what is named the Cavanaugh Home, named “in honor of Colonel James B. Cavanaugh, Seattle District Engineer from August 1911 to Could 1917, development years of the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks.” The home was renovated in 1966 to grow to be the official residence of the US Military Corps of Engineers’ Chief Engineer throughout their 3-year tenure within the Seattle District.
