Now that I’m not spending four hours a day watching the Tour de France, I have all kinds of options — mostly outdoors and active. Nearby Green Lake has two beaches staffed by lifeguards, although I’m not going to swim there because I think the water is too cold. But I love the almost three mile walking/running/biking track around the Lake, and even more, love renting a kayak for an hour. That’s about how long it takes me to paddle from one end of the lake to the other, and it’s a great workout for my upper body.
We’re still having gorgeous weather, although too hot for most native or longtime Seattle-ites. We’ve been between 80 and 85 degrees for many days, although there’s no humidity. I did break down and buy a fan for my bedroom. The downstairs stays cool, but not the upstairs. I like hot weather, even if I need to make accommodations in order to be able to sleep.
Doesn’t this look appealing? 🙂 And access to everything, other than equipment rentals, is free.
