Greetings All,

There is an excellent article about Michelle Lanker and Bill Bloxom's beautiful floating home in this weekend's Seattle Times Pacific Northwest Magazine. You can read the article about the home, which will be featured on this year's floating homes tour here. If you would like to see this unique floating home up close and personal, there are still tickets available here.

An FHA member asked me to share the following Facebook page with you, it will be of interest to people frustrated by the excessive wake some boats make on the lake - https://www.facebook.com/groups/210236896347871/about/ 

A message from Floating Home owner Mary Jones - The P-Patches are in their 45th Year, and still Growing! Seattle's P-Patches are celebrating their 45th anniversary this year. The Eastlake P-Patch, just below Little Water Cantina, is one of the jewels in the crown -- a perfect pocket park that is maintained by local folks growing vegetables and flowers in their own plots, stewards of a public park that all are welcome to pass through and enjoy. All are welcome to join in an informal 45th P-Patch Birthday at the Eastlake P-Patch on Saturday,September 1st, at 10 am, to enjoy the garden, meet the gardeners, and enjoy some light snacks and refreshments.

Finally, we have this week's update on the Aurora Bridge - Not a ton to share this week compared to last time around. Liberty Maintenance continues to make good progress. Crews have been sandblasting the section of the bridge over Westlake this week, and that will continue all of next week. Liberty has adjusted their strategy a bit for the sake of efficiency. You’ll note that the area above Dexter is still marked as incomplete, though crews are now working above Westlake. That’s because crews have yet to complete painting that section though it has already been sandblasted. They will continue sandblasting above Westlake and finish that area before crews go back and finish painting both sections. Liberty will need to resume working nights the week of Aug. 27 as they continue rigging platforms and the containment system on the bridge over Lake Union. Thankfully, the work won’t be very noticeable since they’ll be over the middle of the lake. Crews will not be working Labor Day weekend. There won’t be any work the night of Friday, Aug. 31 through Monday, Sept. 3. Work will resume the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 4. That does it for this week. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

As ever, let me know if you have any questions, comments or suggestions.
All the best
Sarah
