Educational.

The Seattle Ballard locks tour was so interesting. Lynn explained in detail how the locks work and the history of how they came to be. We saw the salmon climbing the ladders to continue on their journey. We learned all about the salmon and their long road they must take to lay their eggs. We had some great coffee to. This tour was so educational and fun.

Hi Mary, thanks so much for the kind words, and for booking! I'm so glad you enjoy the locks as much as I do. It was a pleasure to spend the day with you, stay safe out there on your travels!
