DUKW Birthday

In typical gearhead fashion Vaughn decided he wanted to ride a WWII DUKW amphibious troop truck for his 8th birthday.

The tour is known as "Ride the Ducks" here in Seattle. It was more fun than I expected. The wacky tourist routine gets old fast but the truck itself is pretty cool. The "captain" did a great job presenting the historical portion as well.

 Good day all-in-all. Thanks to Flathead Rob & family for tagging along.

It was fun. I learned a couple of things I didn't know about Seattle history, and the views from Lake Union are spectacular.

I have NO idea how the Kenmore sea planes dodge all the boat traffic on a sunny day...
