Even though it’s a relatively quiet time of year for us, we are keeping busy down here on Lake Union.
I want to introduce you to Joseph, who is helping us out on the weekends. There he is, up on the roof! Joseph is a tax accountant by day, and seaplane base man-of-all-trades on the weekends. He can patch the roof, fuel the airplanes, build things for us… and keep me company, too! Â Joseph stopped by one evening to talk about learning to fly, and before we knew it, he started coming around to give us a hand. While we are working on getting the C-172 back up and running, he is helping out around the place.
(I know you can’t really see Joseph that well in this picture, but I wanted to show off how helpful and versatile he is 😉 )
Speaking of building, my “dad” had a ramp built from our upper walkway down to the dock area. It makes getting to and from the airplanes a lot simpler for everyone! Â We have been using steps to get down to the floating docks, and when Lake Union’s water level changes, it changes the height of our steps, too. Â A ramp makes it so much easier for everyone.
Here I am, inspecting the ramp with Yvette.
By the way, we can accomodate persons of nearly any physical ability on our flights. If you or a loved one is differently-abled (for example, a wheelchair,) please don’t let that stop you from booking a flight with us. Just call or email us, and we will figure out how to make it work for you!
Thanks, everyone, and hope to see you soon!
