Saturday morning on the ship canal bike path

On my ride to sailing class I ride past the Fremont bridge. A sailboat just passed beneath and leaves the ripples in the bottom left of this photo.
A lovely moment on a quiet gray morning. I feel blessed to have been a resident of this beautiful city for 23 years.

Thoughts on Mt Index

Your vision will become clear
Only when you look into your heart.
Who looks outside, dreams.
Who looks inside, awakens.

Old Hwy 10 Cle Elum to Ellensburg, and back

Salve for the cyclist's soul. Cloudy and gray in Seattle, but drive 100 miles over Snoqualmie Pass to the sunny side of Washington State, and this is what you get.
It's all about shaking off the gloom and heading out to grab the joy you know is out there.
I'm so so glad I shook my Saturday gloom and came over.

Pram boats

Amen to that.

Sun on Lake Union

This morning I did my 2nd practice class with volunteer teacher Charles in the white hulled sailboat 2nd from the left. So much calmer today than yesterday. It's taking me a whole to figure out I'm supposed to tack into the wind. Sort of 180 degrees different than the way a cyclist thinks about head and tailwinds.
So nice that I can just hop on my bike and ride to this.
