More Eats!

After lunch we wandered through Pike Place Market - coulda spent all day there just watching the people come and go.

LOVE them public markets. Can you tell that tomatoes are my favorite?


We spent part of the day wandering downtown Seattle today. First, a stop for lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe. What? HARD ROCK CAFE. What? HARD ROCK CAFE!

Sorry. It's loud in there and I'm still hollering when I talk.

They make a mean dessert though - and I almost licked the bowl afterwards.

I dragged the family out tonight for a paddling. We expected one more this trip, but car troubles kept him at the other end of the county.

It was a little bit cool out, which isn't easy for me to admit 'cause it was just so nice to be on the water. Ok, maybe low 40s, upper 30s does not provide the conditions necessary for warm blooded creatures to enjoy the great outdoors.

Maybe I should let them load and unload the boats, working up a sweat while they're at it. Hey, I did.

I spent another weekend in Ewing Cove in the Sucia Islands with my good buddy David. That place is a little slice of heaven for me.

I've been wanting to tell the story of our trips out there in video for a while now, but haven't been able to nail down the story. What's the story on that? Anyway, I don't just want a bunch of random scenes, I want there to be a thread that holds it all together.

David, the emerging writer (and a fine one too) talked through my difficulty with me and helped me think about it in terms of time. From that we came up with the idea of a time lapse of the tide rising, interrupted by real time video.

Here's the result of that experiment.

Shot with a 7D & 25mm Contax. 296 photos over 2 hours and 10 minutes of minimal tidal action (it only rose 2 feet during the day - the extreme tides were at night).
