Seafair Saturday

In numerical order
Originally uploaded by JoshEEE

Today I went out to the I-90 bridge and watched the air show from the bridge deck, which was completely closed down to traffic. It was a wonderful, sunny day and the jets flew right over the bridge several times. This year, there were also some Migs in the show, which was really cool to see. They aren't nearly as loud as the Blue Angles (I believe it's because they are single engine planes)...but they're very impressive to watch.

Took a bunch of pictures, bought lemonade from a stand on Mercer Island where a couple of kids were cleaning house at 2 bucks a glass. They had several 5 gallon drums of it, and they were almost sold out. I remember selling it for a quarter.

I am old.

Anyway, besides the lemonade, as a souveneir for the day, I got an interesting sunburn which left a wonderful white line where my camera strap was hanging around my neck.

Afterwards, Craig and I drove up to Everett and picked up a Dania display cabinet Heather found for me on Craigslist. It goes into the Star Wars room tomorrow. We finished off the evening with a BBQ at my house, then turned off all the lights and watched the Seafair fireworks from the window while listening to the Mariner's game on the radio.

Nice day.
