Hot town...

Summer in the city.

I was hearing Oliver's Who will buy today.  Walking in the city is anonymous bliss for me and I hardly ever get the chance.  But today was perfect for it.  I took an electric scooter to the top of the hill above Pike's Market and walked back to susandennis from there.  Downhill.   I still get credit.

First stop was for a small cup of salted caramel ice cream

The temp was about 71 with a cool breeze off the water.  It was perfect outside walking weather.  Me and a few hundred thousand of my closest friends were hanging out.

There were so many more people than this would seem to show.. but they were all moving.  Couldn't get them together for a picture

A very few people wore masks.  No one made fun of them (aka — not in Texas).

Really.. no one in here wore masks

Everyone not walking around was in a car jamming the streets.

There are generally two types of people in a city.  Those who have their Apple ear buds in and are talking on the phone and those who talk to the ether without an earpiece.  Those of the latter persuasion have taken up much more sidewalk real estate than they used to in Seattle.  A holdover from last summer and the past year.

This was nearly across from the wedding party

Maybe another roll and stroll tomorrow.
