Late Entries for Seattle New Year's Day Traditions

On New Year's Day, we love to go to Golden Gardens Park, where the Kite Association gathers and flies kites. This year was very cold, rainy and blustery -- so much so that I finished my sketches at home.

Another Seattle New Year's Day tradition: burning Christmas trees on the beach. Golden Gardens Park is a salt-water beach on Puget Sound, about 5 miles north of downtown. The park provides burn pits, picnic tables, invigorating beach hike and fantastic vistas.
