May in Seattle

Two huge changes occur on May 1:

1. Winter is Over
Like a light switch going off the weather changes. All of a sudden the highs are in the 50's and the low's are in the 40's. A big 10 degree change in both directions .Less Rain, more Sun. Millions of blooming plants every where, Tulips are a huge deal but all sorts of flora is bringing color to the city. All the trees announce Spring is here. There is a clear distinction between the four seasons which we have never experienced living most of our lives in the two season Texas which is either hot or cold and sometimes both on the same day. This brings a lot of people into the city and it is the beginning of the Tourist Season.

2. Boating Season officially opens May 2
The Three cruise ship terminals were full May 2 which is also the opening day of Boating Season. All of a sudden Elliot Bay is constantly full of all kinds of pleasure vessels, and all the sport fisherman are out in hoards. All the various sailboat racing fleets begin their racing series. I was already having fun with the Winter Sailing season but now you can shed the heavy jacket and the rain clothes. More people are out sailing so you have new opportunities to make connections to increase those sailing moments.The water and all types of marine activities both commercial and recreational are celebrated all across the city, You can see what I am talking about from the short film I got to participate in titled "Sea Folk" produced by the local film production company Digital Kitchen for a competition sponsored by the Seattle International Film Festival:
