A Day In Wallingford

So last Saturday we just hung out in the nabe.

Watched naked people cycle past.


Went for ice cream at the new and very fabulous Molly Moon’s (had the balsamic strawberry which was extremely delicious and the salted caramel which was too salty).


And then came home to watch the setting sun bounce off the downtown buildings from the deck.


I’m so glad we moved to this part of Seattle.

Speaking of which, very long time readers may remember me blogging ages ago about Matt whose videos of him dancing all over the world are some of the most watched on You Tube.  What I didn’t know then is that Matt lives in Seattle and always finishes his videos by dancing near a Seattle landmark (the 2006 video finishes at the Troll which is also just around the corner). The final scene of his latest effort was filmed in Gasworks Park, which is just on the other side of the trees which you can see at the bottom of the picture above.

Unfortunately I found out about the filming a couple of days too late (via the new and very excellent Wallingford Seattle Blog) or else the Minx and I would have been there with bells on (in the figurative sense of course).

Watch the new video and be strangely moved.  And look out for the very nice colourful houses in Buenos Aires.

    Isn’t the Fremont Solstice Parade a riot? I love how it has resisted going mainstream or taking itself too seriously. Welcome, summer.

    So glad you liked Molly Moon’s. We just went by there a couple weekends ago to find out that a friend of ours owns the place.

    you guys really know how to celebrate the summer. in los angeles, we just put our air conditioners on 68 degrees and order sushi to be delivered.

    The neighborhood in Buenos Ares is called Caminito – the birth place of the Tango and Maradona (!). It’s one of BA’s poorer neighborhoods, and obviously as a result it’s the liveliest, artistic and most notorious part of town. Those houses are fabricated from metal salvaged from the nearby shipyard, and the residents did their best to spruce up the area “a bit” by going to town with the colors.

    Maria, tell your friend to make the salted caramel just a bit less salty.
    Tula, summer is taken VERY SERIOUSLY in Seattle.
    Ann, thanks so much for that info. I’ve always dreamt of going to BA and now I know exactly where I want to go.
