All things considered today, our best logistical bet was for Derek to come by our house, with Camden, who was happy to hang out with Granny for a few hours (the feeling was very mutual) and drive into Seattle for an urban hike.

I parked near Green Lake.  We went west on 80th to the end, then north to 85th, and then into Golden Gardens Park, which is a nice little wooded area with plenty of steep trails and steps leading down to a nice beach and bay.

We kept a sharp eye out, going and coming, for interesting homes and yards such as this one, along 80th:

Based on my Boeing On The Move pedometer I figured about 9.5 miles, but looking at Google maps it was surely closer to 12.  Fun urban ramble and Shilshole Bay looks like a place where we can drive in with the inflatable kayak and paddle around the bay.

This part of the world sure is fun!
