Ballard Curiosities - The Neighborhood

Today I went out to discover the neighborhood in which I live: Ballard. It used to be a fishermen's town until it became a shipmaker's town during WWII. Today, it mainly consists of retirees - or so I was told. It looks more like it is inhabited by hippies. If we didn't know better, we'd think Woodstock had taken place in Ballard.

Almost as bad as DSDS ;-)

I went and got some shopping done, enjoying the neighborhood. Next on my list is getting a bike!

Classes don't start until the 24th and orientation will begin on the 8th, so I got a bit of time to explore the city.
