Ivar’s + Gas Works Park

The weather was so nice today (it got above 60º after all) that I decided to pick up Nick from work and do something outside. We went to Ivar’s for fish and chips and clam chowder. A friendly (and hungry!) duck came up to us as we were eating and stared straight at me. She’d cock … Continue reading »

Spring has Sprung

  As promised by Marie a post or two ago, here’s photo evidence that spring is here in Seattle. The cherry trees in the Quad at UW have bloomed and what a great day to capture of a picture of it! Last night I told Marie it would be nice out today and she dared … Continue reading »
