We have been out and about here in Seattle and one place we naturally wanted to visit was a LOCK. The 2 locks are Chittenden locks also called Ballard locks. They lock boats up from Puget Sound and the Pacific Ocean into the ship canal and onto Lake Union and Lake Washington.
There are 2 locks, one is 30`x150` and the second is 80`x825`.

|Filling fast as i stand on the top gate|
|Full lock, the other boats queueing were to large for the left side spaces|
|One of 5 lockies on duty around the lock, all with safety harness`s|
|This boat even has a hot tub on the roof|
