The mist gave the Christmas Ships a ghostly appearance as they drifted emerging from the fog in front of O.O. Denny Park late Sunday afternoon. The ships’ reflections on the grey water swayed in the windless night. About 20 ships accompanied the Argosy Christmas Ship while The Pacific Sound Chorus performed a range of holiday classic songs. Hot chocolate under holiday lights and a huge bonfire warmed the several hundred people who listened to the songs from the drifting flotilla. This year the ships came early to O.O. Denny Park at...read more

Please stop by to enjoy the new bench, a solid, comfortable work of art by King County...read more
