Recent Pics (to tide you over)

The battle to preserve the “googlie” building that housed the Ballard Denny’s at 15th and Market has been lost irrevocably. Personally I think it looks just as good in this pic as it ever did while still a Denny’s. And the service and food are probably better.

In the opposite mode there is Richelle Mead, who always looks good no matter how you try to sneak up on her. This time, however I did manage to catch her cynical side. (It’s the right one.)

She suspects there may be no real alcohol in the “dragon monkey punch” and I suspect she’s right.

Meanwhile here’s one of our neighbors at the Marina. Or more precisely on the marina breakwater:

Kind of a crappy pic since I had to shoot from a dock and use the zoom, but he’s actually about 10 feet tall and leaning on a sword. No… I don’t know how he got there, but legend has it, he merely waits for the day the marina is in deathly peril to come to its rescue. Or possibly to sack it and set fire to the lot of us.

And in spite of the horror of overflowing sewage tanks, showers in the midst of remodel and being three miles from the nearest store, this makes up for everything. I give you, last night’s sunset:

    love the metal skeleton and Richelle Mead does always look pretty. Dragon Monkey Punch sounds like a bad kung fu movie. 🙂

  2. LOL. Someone added a Loch Ness monster up by the skeleton today…. What is that about, I wonder?

    Oh! How I agree about the Dennys. In grad school I studied Historic Preservation and City Planning, and nothing makes me madder than using great programs for crappy projects. My fellow Ballardites are upset about the condo and townhome boom here, but that isn’t any reason to use the Landmark Preservation Program to preserve CRAP. Sigh.

    Sunsets over shilshole are always so lovely, aren’t they? 🙂 We are lucky to live in such a beautiful place!
