    This dial is within a pocket park full of art on the shore of Puget Sound that has a theme of local history and the natural setting (weather vane, sundial). A century ago this site was a ferry dock for the famous Puget Sound “mosquito fleet.”

Below the dial:

    “Time is too slow for those who want. Too swift for those who fear. Too long for those who grieve. Too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love time is eternity.”

Last seen: 1996 (gnomon was badly bent)
