From Freeway I- 5 : Take the Mercer street exit and turn right on Fairview and immediate left onto Valley. Look to your right – You can not miss the beautiful MOHAI building and just on the right is the charming Center for Wooden Boats. The Historic Ships Wharf is behind MOHAI on the lakeside. Lotus is on the first dock , east side – along with the Virginia V, Arthur Foss, Duwamish and Swiftsure.
From the Seattle Ferry : Take the first right out of the ferry terminal – go north on Alaska Way until you must turn right on Broad, left onto 5th (just under the monorail), then right onto Mercer, left on to Westlake Ave. You will see the park on your immediate right.
Public parking: Available on Westlake Ave, in the small city pay lot in front of MOHAI and in the garage below the AGC building on Westlake Ave.
Walking from Westlake – Cross into Lake Union Park at corner of Valley Street. Walk toward MOHAI and Center for Wooden Boats and walk down the right side of MOHAI on the wide concrete road / wharf. Lotus will be straight ahead of you. CWB will be on your right.
Walking from Fairview – Walk into the Lake Union Park from the Waterfront Shops and Restaurants of South Lake Union …

We occasionally go out for a short cruise – usually mid-summer to show Lotus around our lakes or through the locks to another town on Puget Sound. We will be back in a few days at most. Unless we’re having too much fun.
