Everyone run for cover the jets are taking over or so it seems. Not really it is just Seafair and the Blue Angels are in town. The NAVY is here as well in numbers, Belltown was full of the sailor's. It is crazy when you see those Jets and the power they have. I also think it is fun for the Military guys and girls to have fun in the town. I would have to image it is a good time to blow off some steam and enjoy the town. I also get the argument about our Military power and show of it but the guy has to say its so cool. I could watch those jets all day long and I think it looks cool when you see everyone in the uniforms. Seafair is also just a great weekend to be in Seattle. Between the Blue Angels and the hydro races on the weekend it is overload on the senses. Summer in Seattle is awesome and I can't wait for this weekend and to see the Blues flying above the lake. Hope you get out there and have fun and if you are on the log boom, be safe and drink one for me.
So summer is here and so is the great weather as well. The funny thing is in Seattle I feel like we do a good job of bitching when the weather is not good and then in time we start to bitch about the heat. Let me start by saying I love summer but I am going to do some complaining. When I got home last night around ten my house was hot. I live on the sixth floor of a building in a one bedroom condo. I am not sure if it is from being on the sixth floor or from the fact my place faces west but in the evening and night it is warm in that sucka. Now what do you do when you get home and it is just hot and sticky in your place? I myself go straight to mesh shorts and t-shirt with the sleeves cut off. I basically go home and turn into Larry the Cable guy. One thing that has changed for me in the last year though is this summer I have a portable Air-conditioning unit in my bedroom so it is nice and cool when I sleep. Shout out to STP for the hook up on that air-conditioner. I also like being outside but when it comes to eating outside in the sunlight I am not for that. I don't mind eating outside but eating in the sunlight is just not fun in my book. I will have some drinks with you sure but if you to grab some food lets go inside honey. Now he is the deal though with all that bitching I just did I still love summer in Seattle and hope it last for months. Get out there and enjoy life
This weekend is the 4th of July and I am excited. I am fired up for many reasons but number one is I have some family coming into town and I can't wait to show off Seattle. I have had a couple ideas about what I want to show them but in the end it is Seattle in the summer. I sometimes take for granted how beautiful the city is. I have options and not sure what to do with them but I like the idea of showing them Discovery Park because it is a nice park and you can get down to the beach for some great views of the city. I have also thought about just hoping on a ferry and going across to one of the islands to show them the difference and maybe grab a quick bite over there. The 4th itself is also one of my favorite holidays. I think part of the reason I like it so much is just having a BBQ with friends and enjoying some cold beverages and fireworks
