Another Picture Post

The Chief came for a visit. Here is what we did.

Hung out with the Fremont Troll.

Waited for the bus with these dudes.

Appeared on television.

Somehow managed not to gorge ourselves on delicious Northwest fare at Pike Place Market.
Looked out on to the Port of Seattle.

Went inside the downtown library. IT IS AMAZING.
Kinda makes you want to come for a visit too, huh?

Mt. Rainier National Park

The Misty Mountains. I think some people might have been disappointed by the weather, but we were undeterred. I imagined this is what it would be like to live in a comic strip with a white background all the time.


It was the Chief's brilliant idea to go. We left early and stopped at Charlie's in Enum Claw for brunch. Full of oatmeal, pancakes, steak, potatoes and gravy, we set off for a hike.

Behind you -- COUGAR!

Is that a grizzly or a black bear?

Os portugueses chegaram ao lago no fundo da montanha.

We went to the top of Sunrise, hung out by the fire in the visitor's center for a bit, and took a picture of Mt. Rainier.
It's right there!
Yeah, you couldn't see the mountain that day, but the air smelled so nice that nobody cared.

Missed landmark

Forgot to post that we saw the Red Sox beat the Mariners last month. Safeco is a beautiful stadium.

Toby demonstrates the difference between a Boston game face (left) and a Seattle game face (right).


Opened a fortune
cookie, but nothing inside.
Death that much closer?

Here in Seattle,
summer comes in September.
Gorilla is miffed.

Philandering dill
has gotten into parsley.
Conspicuous stalks.

I didn't know that
whoopie pies are an east coast
thing. Moon pies are gay.
