The Last of Summer

Stephanie and I on her dock on Lake Union

Today I believe is the first day this year that I have seen 80 degrees. And I think tomorrow will be the last of this hot spell. But I'm glad I made it back to Seattle while it's still warm. I'm making the most of it too since I'm not usually here!

Luckily I have a friend who lives on a cottage on a dock in Lake Union, so this afternoon I went for a swim off her dock. I was pleasantly surprised at the water temperature - it's amazing not being in Alaska!

On Wednesday I enjoyed hanging out on the beach for my friend Jennie's birthday. It's an easy life when the weather is predictably gorgeous every day. We are about to come very close to breaking the record for the longest stretch of days without rain in Seattle. I have to say, I'm actually a little glad I wasn't here for all of it - it's a lot of work to put sun screen on every day when you're as white as I am. I think by next week, I will be happy to see a cloud or two.
