Ode To Sweet Seattle Summer

You are so beautiful to me…

With your 70 degree temps
your skies packed with sunshine
not a raindrop in sight.

Afternoons aplenty
everyone leaves early
for myself I find a tennis wall to hit on
and a Menchie’s froyo cup to refresh.

Or maybe a park bench
Kerry Park, to be exact
to start a new novel
or ponder a crossword
the city’s skyline cheering me on.

Free fries offered at Ivars
the waterfront seafood bar
makes a great pitstop post site visit
Friday afternoon
stay away seagulls.

Masons smoking my dinner in the sand.
Alder smoked salmon, garlic bread compliments of Great Harvest, and coleslaw with great old timey music in the background.

Ballard Seafood Fest
filled with music, vendors
oh, and alder-smoked salmon
compliments of the Masons.

Back to Big Picture
for laughs at movie Ted
and a round robin of tennis
per request by the boy.

A BBQ for a friend’s birthday
glorious Golden Gardens
booze, food, and games
that’s what summer is about.
