I’ve always thought of Kenmore as a neighborhood in Seattle, but guess what? It’s a city in its own right with its own zip code, 98028.
The other thing about Kenmore is Kenmore Air – a local company of seaplanes that fly into downtown Seattle via Lake Union, or Seattle's Boeing Field, or further onto the beautiful San Juan Islands, and way north to our Canadian neighbors in Victoria and Vancouver, British Columbia.
The first time I ever flew in an airplane was from Seattle to Ketchikan, Alaska in the early 1970s and I was just a 16-year old adventurer. I remember the “big plane” landed on an Alaskan island and then we had to board smaller seaplanes that landed at the Ketchikan seaport. I had my cat with me in a travel “cat carrier” and I was SCARED! Therein was born my fascination with seaplanes.
So here we are. Just minutes from Kenmore Air in downtown Kenmore, Washington. How is it that my life is so cool?
Isn't she a beauty??
A local entertainment TV show's personal seaplane...Evening Magagine's Maggie II. Sometimes the show has contests for rides in Maggie II - wish for us to win!
A private seaplane at the seaport.
