We went out for dinner the other evening, and once the sun was no longer blasting directly in our eyes – yay for precession of the equinoxes – we were treated to a hell of a sight.

See, the Alaskan Way Viaduct has blocked any real view of the Puget Sound from ground level since the 1950s. But it’s going away. Near Pioneer Square, it’s gone. I can look right at the water.

Until they start building up that juicy real estate, of course. But I’ll enjoy it while I can.
