A Good Ol' Fashioned 4th of July
A fine 4th of July, it was! Summer weather, hot and dry, not normal for Seattle, where Independence Day usually is wet and cool. Z came down from Vancouver, bringing three friends. One of them was the Aussie, a chef who had shared their house for a month or two while settling down, and it was his first trip to the States.
So, we ate. Bar-B-Q, corn on the cob, baked beans, strawberry shortcake and a salmon on the grill.
Such a great couple of days of eating that I had to get out on the 5th and put in over 35 miles, this time circumnavigating Boeing Field on a long, relatively flat ride.
