Had a great Saturday with Anna. We did the tourist thing, with the underground tour, a trip up the Space Needle, dinner at Moxie in Queen Anne, and we capped off the night at the Paramount with a spectacular performance by the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater.

Afterwards I went to a Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition event at the aquarium. It was great, with wonderful food, drink, music, presentations, photos, and people to chat with. Good stuff for sure.

It's been a pretty social past couple weeks or so with Mary's birthday, Greendrinks, a concert at Gabriel and Jill's with Bill Horist and Obelus, another house concert with Beast, Please Be Still a couple days later, dinner for Mary's birthday, Stone Soup nite at Dan and Lara's, and Honkfest. Good fun, crazy, interesting stuff!
Otherwise I'm almost healed up and can ski again. Soon, I'll be able to run, then hike, and finally alpine climb once again.

Saw the orthopedist the other day and she said my knee is healing up exceptionally well and I was happy to hear that!
In other news, I went on a lovely paddle with Omar, South from Fauntleroy to Three Tree Point. It was a beautiful sunny day with great views of the Olympics and Mt. Rainier. I got a good workout on the way back as we had a four mile paddle into a 10 mph wind.

I can ride my bicycle around again! I have been tentative about riding around with my hurt knee, but yesterday rode 27 miles all around town with Stephen and Jon, and it was fine! It was totally awesome to get some exercise and realize that I don't have to drive much any more, especially since we have had nine straight days of brilliant sunshine and warm weather.
Friday I drove up to B'ham with Jeff and Doug. Alan and Rachel threw an awesome dinner party, and Marlin and Christine were visiting from Santa Cruz. It was great to catch up with them and meet a bunch of other cool folks like Nate and Jessica.
Marlin, Christine, & Doug have bikepacked all around the world. Amazing stuff. Check out M&C's amazing 3d slideshow website.
On Saturday Doug and I split early and the other guys had an amazing day of skiing. B*&^%rds!). I'll be good to go this spring, if there's any snow left...
