Summer 2008 - Mercer Island Farmers Market

I'm thinking about summertime today... So here's a slide show music video of my friends Patrick, Bruce, and I playing at the farmers market last summer. The pictures are from one particular day at the market-- we played there two or three time over the course of the summer. The music you'll hear was actually recorded earlier in Patricks basement.

Discovery Park



Wednesday - March 18


Puget Sound panorama from Discovery Park bluff.

Today I took a beach walk at Discovery Park-- my favorite Seattle park. At 534 acres it's Seattle's largest city park and occupies the former Fort Lawton Army base. And as you can see it has some great views of Puget Sound.

The Seattle Bike Expo

Saturday - March14

Today my friend David and I went to the Seattle Bicycle Expo. This year the Expo was held out at Magnusun Park, the retired Sand Point Naval Base, in an old airplane hangar. As a result of the pouring rain we got diverted from our original plan to bike there. A lot of people must have done the same thing because the parking was a nightmare.

I was especially interested in looking at folding bikes. But only two vendors had any folding bikes displayed and they were both the same kind-- Dahons. It turns out REI's Navara brand folding bike is made by Dahon.



I did run across these cool handlebar grips though made by Ergon and bought a pair. They're VERY comfortable!

I had intended to take my camera and get some pics but had put my camera with my bike helmet so I'd be sure to take it... so much for that plan.

Coraline

Saturday - March 7

Coraline

Today my friend Diane and I braved the forcast for snow and went to see the movie Coraline. The movie uses a combination of computer animation and puppets that makes it really fun to watch. The location is based on the story taking place in Ashland, Oregon just a few miles south of where I was staying in Medford last month.
My rating: **1/2
