Why it's cool to live where we live. . .

This was yesterday:

Breakfast in Port Orchard, followed by a ferry ride across the Puget Sound to Seattle (where, for you Turlock folks, we picked up Anya for the day). Lunch was Indian food in Ballard. Then off to Golden Gardens park for the afternoon - running through the sand, playing in the surf, getting some sunshine. Over to Fremont for gellato and gluten-free pastries (and a quick stop at Dusty Strings). Pick up sushi and head to Queen Anne Hill, where we eat dinner overlooking Elliott Bay, downtown Seattle, and Mt. Rainier hovering in the distance. The kids head down the hill to play on one othe best playgrounds in the city. Then over to REI for a few minutes, a stop for coffee, and a drive home at Sunset.

It was, by all accounts, a marvelous summer Seattle day. I even wrote a poem about it:

It was 80 degrees and sunny at the beach yesterday.
We were at the beach yesterday
It was nice.

(I never said it was a good poem. . .)

It's not even a haiku, which would have been more impressive.
Still, the beach is nice.
