It was so gorgeous by the waterfront, that I went back Saturday with a couple of Urban Sketchers to sketch again. Volunteers were cleaning the rocks of the Japanese monument.
The day was warm and as it wore on, more and more people arrived to take pictures, picnic, and play by the cherry trees.

Even the MAX trains seemed to slow as they were near the north end of the Steele bridge, perhaps giving the riders an extra view of all the pink blossoms.
On Sunday, I wanted to show my husband the cherry trees, so we went back and I sketched again while he read. This time I looked toward the Burnside Bridge.
