Seattle

Wandered around town today -- first around Steilacoom (about 30 miles south of Seattle), a pretty little community perched on the edge of the Sound. It's also the home of the oldest Catholic Church in Washington State. (Didn't get a photo since the brand new rechargable batteries I loaded into my cameras needed to be ... well ... recharged!). Then hung around Pike Place Market on a beautiful summer afternoon -- upper 70s, sunshine, light breeze -- wandering among the crowds sampling organic ware and other Left Coast specialities, and reading Chesterton's musings (so perspicacious, and so apposite, nearly a century later!) on America (What I Saw in America)

Crabs!
