A 75 degree September day of sun and clear skies above Seattle downtown--heaven. Lunch at hole-in-the-wall next to De Laurenti's, offering more beans and rice than I could manage for 2.00, soda for 85 cents.
Sat on a ledge by the Hammering Man watching this demonstration of alternative technology. Went into the lobby of Seattle Art Museum and viewed these moving self-portraits by kids who are 15 and enrolled in the teen program there.
All this entertainment made the 14.00 parking charge seem like a reasonable price for admission.
