Elliott Avenue

Saturday night. We picked up baguettes and cheese and prosciutto and tapenade at Whole Foods and enjoyed waterfront dining on a bench below the grain elevator. It was a gorgeous evening - better than we had been promised by the weather experts.

The Helix Bridge was built by Amgen (or Immunex) back when they built their headquarters behind Elliott Bay Park - now the biotech folks have moved off to sunnier pastures, leaving their DNA-inspired pedestrian bridge and their office buildings behind. Expedia has acquired the space and has big plans to expand the campus and move in over the next few years. I suppose ten years after that, some other high tech business will take their place!
