Qwest Field

It was a great fall afternoon for D's and my second annual pilgrimage to Qwest Field. Unfortunately it wasn't so great an afternoon for the Seahawks. The Redskins won 20-17. D reminds me that the Seahawks are on track for a pretty good draft pick, so maybe next year will be a little better. Good thing my spirits depend more on nice sunsets than on football scores.

Sculpture Park

The meeting was about restoring urban shorelines and we visited the sculpture park after lunch. The sun broke through as we were preparing to leave, leaving us with a few minutes of nice light and even a full rainbow over the Space Needle.


It's nice to occasionally have a meeting downtown so I can just take the bus. I headed for the Seattle's Best Coffee at Pike and First, only to find it gone, but there's still one a block north where Post Alley meets Pine. The day started pretty gray and rainy - but it was still nice to wander through the market watching the folks set up.
