Alki Blues in Seattle

Although Seattle’s nickname is the Emerald City it could just as easily be called the Blue City.   Surrounded by water, Seattle lies on a strip of land between Puget Sound and Lake Washington. The first white settlers to the area – the Denny… Continue Reading “Alki Blues in Seattle”

A Fall Day with Purple and Gold

No not this variety – this variety. I finally attended a Husky Football Game – at the University of Washington for those who don’t know – and yes, that’s my alma mater – and no I’m not telling you how long ago. Why did… Continue Reading “A Fall Day with Purple and Gold”
