H’s first week of homework… numbers, numbers, numbers.
H & F intently studying some kind of Salmon at the viewing gallery at the Hiram M. Chittenden locks in Seattle.
People were less than amused when we broke out the fishing rod…
A little 4+ mile hike with the gang from Sunrise to Frozen Lake
along Sourdough Ridge and the odd scree slope
great views and great company
and two very good little hikers to boot!
More for family on flickr.
After a long stretch of amazing weather, we awoke yesterday to cloudy skies, not a patch of blueness in sight. The obvious remedy was to drive up to Sunrise for a little clear air and a small 4+ mile hike with the boys (more of that later). This was the view north from Sourdough Ridge — Mount Baker is just visible on the horizon line to the right (that’s about 130 miles north), and we live over to the left, underneath all that cloudy stuff.
We’ve had just a few visitors, and thanks to Emma the house is now suitably sign posted!
The Seattle Steam company brightens up the parking lot with a couple of big Orca paintings.
with some deer along for the ride (the others were too fast for piccy’s)
Then off to meet the others at the new extension at the Seattle Aquarium
where the Octopus had escaped
so a quick walk along the water front (missing the ghost tour)
before heading off to the international fountain
by the space needle
for some fun with the boys
with the water…
I remember running on the beach, at Frinton-on-Sea.
