The groundbreaking is rapidly approaching, and a rough path has been graded to the ceremony tent atop the upper lot. Folks who move slowly should allow plenty of time to make it up the slope.

The "ROOM TO BREATHE" banner has been lowered (did anyone else notice the tagging that appeared - look just below "TO"), and the new "I AM SAM" banner moved into place. I don't think the sail boats were out to celebrate, but they looked great from here.

Smaller banners have been staked in place to indicate roughly where certain features will appear. Odd that the "Shore" banner was placed at the top of the lower lot hill.

The "Pavilion" banner stands up near Elliott, looking down on the weeds and wildflowers that have served as such wonderful placeholders.

The "Grove" banner flies in the face of the Kanikkeberg Terminal, all to often referred to as the trolley barn. Eldo Kanikkeberg was Metro Operator of the Year in 1986, and should be given his props.

And the "Valley" and "Meadow" banners hint at the promise that awaits us when the chain-link fences come down.

One neighbor's unoffical journal of construction progress made at the Olympic Sculpture Park. As seen over, and through, the fences.
