Kerry Park, what a view!

March 4, 2009

Kerry Park is awesome! Well, it’s more like a grassy knoll with a view but what a view!

I’d been here once before with some buddies a few years back but decided that it was time to take the lady. Also, a perfect day and perfect excuse for a motorcycle ride.

Once there we got some pics with my phone so take a gander :). I’m looking pretty beardy because of a mustache contest at work, but that’s another story.

Well, I’ve made the leap into Twitter.  I’ve decided to focus on Belltown and have chosen to follow people in the Belltown area.  So far I’ve really enjoyed it!

It’s much more than just mundane updates on daily routines.  For instance, I’m following one Seattle P.I. employee and I’m getting updates about it’s status and the inner workings of those caught in the closure.   My apartment and condo hunting has me following a realtor and keeping and eye on apartment complexes with Twitter accounts.  I’m also following a Belltown crime twitter account so I get the latest updates on issue that matter to me.

On a separate note:  It’s snowing outside.  My new motorcycle is begging to be ridden, but is instead freezing to death in the garage.  Patience is a virtue I suppose.



Mustache Contest!

March 2, 2009

My work held a mustache contest and I decided to participate. Having never grown facial hair beyond the ‘scruffy’ look this was an experiment for me.

What am I capable of growing? Well, although the result isn’t stellar, I think I grew a pretty respectable mustache. I was nowhere near winning the contest but I was nowhere near last place either.



Seattle is beautiful

February 21, 2009

Seattle is truely a beautiful city. I decided to take my new motorcycle for a spin with my girlfriend Audrey on the back and decided to park at one of the piers. This is the picture I took with my iPhone.

Isn’t Seattle grande?!


Seattle Fog

February 19, 2009

Nature can be beautiful, but so can downtown Seattle. Occasionally a fog will roll in and it’s just like a fresh layer of snow that covers up all the dirt and makes things look new again.

Here’s a picture as the fog is rolling out. Not the best picture, but the only foggy one I’ve taken.


Snow in Seattle

February 18, 2009

Would ya look a that! Snow all over the place! Seattle really does look nice covered in snow. Now I’m hoping it snows again next year. Of course, I walk to work, the grocery store, etc so I’m lucky like that.


Tula’s on 2nd Ave

August 19, 2008

I went to Tula’s on 2nd Ave recently and I gotta say it’s an excellent place to listen to jazz music! There was a $5 dollar cover at the door for this particular event. Apparantly the cover charge is determined by the band.

I went back the next week and there was a $10 cover. Either way, I dig this place and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys jazz music (and happens to be near 2nd and Blanchard in Belltown).
