Saturday Night In The Center

We spent Saturday night in the Fremont district of Seattle, known locally as the Center Of The Universe.  We kicked off the evening with our friends Margie and Rick at the George And The Dragon, a well known British style pub.  We had dinner, watched a quarter of the WSU vs Oregon game and then wondered across the street to Woodsky's, a local ski themed bar which premiered a documentary snow boarding movie called Tortoise, featuring our Marjie and Rick's son Eythan.  You can see (barely) Eythan performing in the picture above.

Barers Of Maple Valley Return From Trip


Deb and I have just returned from a wonderful weekend in Seaside Oregon. Deb's Mom was with us as we had a relaxing time walking the beaches of Gearheart, Seaside, and Cannon Beach.  Seaside, of course was a family tradition growing up, one that was easily passed on to Deb's family.  We stayed at Worldmark resort at the famous turnaround, where these pictures were taken.
