A Day on the Water

LOCATION: Housesitting in Seattle, Washington

WEATHER: Incredibly warm. Breaking temperature records. High 78. Sunny. Is this Seattle???

Our homeowner is a yoga instructor and has a yoga studio in the basement. George uses it daily for stretching…

We packed Dundee up in the car and drove about 5 miles to a beautiful, urban lake called Green Lake. Due to the spectacular weather, it was packed with walkers. We did the 3+ mile hike around the lake.

Dundee behaved quite well around the other dogs. Just as we were ending the trek, he plopped down on the path as if to say “That’s enough”. We enticed him back to the car with dog treats.

After dropping him back at home to rest, we went to nearby Fishermen’s Terminal, at the suggestion of one of my faithful blog readers. It is both a yacht basin as well as a working fishermen harbor.

We enjoyed a grilled wild salmon lunch with this view in front of us. George began his meal with a local oyster…

We stopped in Ballard, also nearby, at another microbrewery. We are trying to get our brewery “passport” filled out so we can redeem a prize! 🙂

DINNER: Chicken parmesan. Using part of the leftover rotisserie chicken, I added sauteed onions and bell peppers, sprinkled on parmesan, then baked it all. Side was the last of the brussels sprouts, charred, then baked also with a little parmesan and a sprinkle of balsamic vinegar.
