Last Sunday, we went out to Alki Beach with our good friends Matt and Jenn. A favorite of theirs, but I'd never been. It was quite the interesting experience, almost a mini-California if you will. There's an imported white sand beach, we saw a sand volleyball tournament going on and watched one of the games, kind of has the "boardwalk" feel to it, along with all the interesting people watching involved. We walked from Salty's down the beach to the Bamboo Bar and Grill and ended up having an early dinner! ... and of coarse couldn't pass up the ice cream stand on the way back! Among other sites, a man with a trained parrot, a mini-statue of liberty, beautiful Olympic Mountains and a clear blue sky!

Me at the mini-Statue of Liberty (apparently there's a bunch of these across the US)
Can't beat ice cream on a hot sunny day :)
Matt had a HUGE burger

Mt Rainier was out too!

... and here's a little shout out to my friend Ellen! Hope you're having fun day @work :)
