A funny thing...

So today Alisa and I took a walk downtown along the water front. There is a sculpture park that has some weird sculptures there. One is of a giant rolling typewriter eraser. Pretty weird. This one is called "Eagle." Well....I don't see it, but maybe others do.

This is the path we walked along. There is a bike path just to the left. It is pretty nice. Well, as we came to the end of the path there was a fishing pier. And... well just look for yourself.

I mean, who really though that was a good idea?

Alki Beach (By JJ)

Friday Alisa and I drove downtown and took a water taxi across the bay to Akli Point over in West Seattle. Alisa read about it in our Seattle travel book. We ate some mexican food at a bar called the Coyote Grill, and then we walked along the beach. We were very surprised to the atmosphere a lot like that of a beach in So. Cal. There was a volleyball league with probably 8 games going on. There were BBQ'ers and those that just wanted to have a fire on the beach. The road goes right along the beach and the there are shops and restaurants all along the other side of the street, so everything is right there along the water. As night came, we walked the 2 miles back to the taxi pier. As we came around the point you could see downtown from accross the bay, and as the sky got darker, the city got brighter. The best part was when we were riding the water taxi back, we sat on the bow of the boat and just looked at the city reflecting in the bay. Our city may be a little crazy and unorganized, but it sure is a beautiful place to live. Unfortunately we have lost our camera, so all the pictures we are posting Alisa found online. We also saw a Raccoon crawling around on the rocks by the beach. I swear, it is like the nature channel everytime we go out somewhere.

The Place We Live (By JJ)

The Pacific Northwest is one of the most beautiful places in the world, and we actually LIVE here! It is really cool. In February we took a trip out to the Olympic coastline which is just a few hours away.

The Pacific coastline is so rugged. This is the type of beach that Alisa and I just love. Neither of us really like to swim in the ocean (too scary), so we enjoy a beach and coastline that is pretty to look at, not swim in.
This place really just rocks. Riding the bus to work I look out over the lake at the city and I just can't imagine any place that could be prettier to live. It is just great. I'll update later with more pictures soon.
