becaue who knows when we'll have free wireless internet again

We're leaving Seattle today for the Olympic peninsula and must blog!

We have been staying in Nick's sister's godmother (Katherine)'s house which is lovely.

We did a lot of the Seattle touristy things. We saw the sunset from the top of the space needle!

We even went on the ridiculous ride in the park under the space needle that flings you around so you can see the skyline upside down and a hundred feet in the air!

The next day we went down to the market along the waterfront where dudes in waders throw giant fishes back and forth to the amusement of dozens of tourists with their cameras ready.

Then we took the water taxi across the sound to West Seattle, where we just sat around looking at regular Seattle and playing with the toys we won at the arcade.

Then Nick took me to the crab pot for birthday dinner! We got an ocean feast and I even got to blow out a candle.

All in all, a good time and a great birthday. Thanks to everyone who sent birthday wishes! 22 is cool so far.

That ride looks like the Thunder N Lightin from Lake Compounce.

Happy birthday again! And thanks for the postcard, by the way. Using ostriches to sell ostrich jerky is kind of like when they used Miss Piggy to sell Denny's Grand Slam breakfasts with sausage and bacon.
