Coffee Soup

This afternoon Julie and I went for a walk to the Locks, and then up the Magnolia side of the canal for a bit. This is a deli at 28th and Market.

Dirty, deflated, bedraggled, but still happy.

Someone had decorated their mailbox to be a party.

It's difficult to see in this image, but there's an adult osprey, landing at its nest on the railroad bridge. There were two fledgling osprey there, occasionally chirping "Mom! Still hungry!" calls.

Sea Lion at the Salmon Buffet

5:16 PM

There were two sea lions, right at the base of the fish ladder. It was like an all-you-can-eat buffet for them, as they were where all the salmon had to go.

There was a crew of four workers from Fisheries & Wildlife (we presume). They were catching and tagging the salmon in the ladder. A few minutes after taking this picture, the guy threw an M80 (or similar) into the water to scare off the sea lion. Even sunk under the water, it was loud enough and strong enough to feel it in our feet.

5:43 PM

Outside the new QFC on the way back home. Of course the best place to get this picture was the middle of the entrance to the parking lot. D'oh!

What a great collection of images. My favs are the balloon and the mailbox. Much more interesting than my day in pictures!

Oh, I've been to that fish ladder place. I went up to Seattle to work for my union at the convention center and we got to stay there during the show and sight see and hang out. That was kind of a long time ago though - like maybe 10 years ago.

My faves are the Happy Graffiti, the Mailbox, and Shadows. Shadows is fascinating.

Coffee soup: ugh! Doesn't sound so good. I'll take your word for it.

I don't want to try the coffee soup.

We really like the fish ladder, and the locks as well. We always bring out of towners there whenever we can, and visit it ourselves.

I must have just missed you. Instead of riding back over the Ballard bridge I rode up to the locks and crossed there at about the same time. I chatted with the fishery workers before heading over to the Ballard side.

On my way home I stopped at the new gelato place on Ballard Ave. Fig and caramel gelato. wow.

Great pictures. I particularly like the shadows.

Re: coffee soup

Heh. There's a place on Greenwood that serves Teriyaki Burger Shakes.

Wow, some terrific images here. Love the balloon. The Coffee Soup sign reminds me of the old Teriyaki Coffee sign I used to see down along the canal in the U District.

That shadow photo is so beautiful - like a Moholy-Nagy.
