I finally got around to uploading pics of our short Seattle vacation to Flickr. Our first full day there, Saturday, benefitted from beautiful weather. We took a nice boat ride on Lake Washington and skipped by BillG᾿s immense house.

The pic does not do it justice. There are a few more here. We must᾿ve gotten too close for comfort because a security guard came to the water᾿s edge and mad dogged us.

We also had the opportunity to check out the new sculpture park. I thought it was quite interesting. One of my favorite sculptures was this chrome tree, seen here behind a real tree.


I also had the opportunity to visit some friends at Microsoft. Apparently Microsoft is experiencing explosive growth. My friend Julie who worked on campus a couple years ago is now at an office complex one freeway exit away off campus.

Our friends worked hard to convince us that we should move to Seattle. But I think it may take more convincing, as we᾿ve both contracted a cold and blame the damn Seattle weather. Wink
