Curly Q’s

I saw these on our trip to the Locks.  I love whimsical art.  It’s fun and carefree.  There is a side of me that this appeals to, but it’s locked up deep inside storing itself up for a time that doesn’t exist. Life is pretty busy, hectic and stressful, but somewhere, the kid inside me looks for an escape into the magical and pretend.
I thought it ironic to find whimsical art at a location that is more matter of fact and scientific.  I liked the balance in that.
So, what is the Locks?  It is basically a ship/boat elevator; I read that and it took the mystery out of what looks like a complicated process.

Here are some boats waiting to cross over to the higher level lake from Puget Sound (the ocean).
