We followed the sun westward.

The trip went very well (Icelandair is the best), and landed in a dark and rainy Seattle. After a fairly good nights sleep, and fighting off wakefullness, I got up early and took a walk in the darkness of Ballard. The sidewalk gardens were striking in the street lighting. 

An ancient cherry tree 
A birch 
Now for a cup of java at my favorite oasis in Ballard – Caffe Fiore!
