We have had a LOOOOONNNNGGGG WINTER. It is officially over. Last weekend marked the opening of boating season with a festive boat parade, and most of the backyard and balcony grills in town are starting to herald outdoor cooking season, as well. The sun is smiling upon the Emerald City, and our sap is running! In this shot it is 6:30 PM Monday evening and the streets are alive with people out and about. This is the view down 15th (one of the shopping streets in the Capitol Hill neighborhood) from patrons seated in front of Cafe Ladro and looking further south past Coastal Kitchen (super seafood!). Shorts and sandals abound, and even the stooped elderly lady with bag in hand behind her is wearing just a light sweater. And all the mountains, including Mt. Rainier were OUT.
