saturday – morning ski, night bike ride

One of my favorite things in the world is an evening bike ride in Seattle. I took a great ride tonight from our house in Wallingford to and around Green Lake, listening to KEXP’s Audioasis. Thanks, Sean Nelson, for a good sound track for the ride. I plan on taking bike rides like that ’til I’m old.

This morning, despite a 5 hangover on a scale of 10, I went waterskiing with Samantha and Eric Steinwinder. I took Mark Burfeind along too. Man, what a perfect morning for waterskiing. It didn’t take long for me to forget about my hangover. It’s August 26, but this was my first ski of the summer. Skiing on smooth water with good friends is also one of my favorite things in the world.
