Biking the Burke-Gilman

Starting at Sand Point, the Friends of the Library Annual Book Sale, biking back home to Redmond.

I woke up early--the sunrise was picturesque.Kassi cat takes an opportunity to crawl into a box...

Eric managed to fit the bikes into the back of the BMW.We started out at Sand Point Magnuson Park. There was a display of works of art from young artists. I have to say, I wasn't very impressed.

Eric wasn't impressed either.This was also the weekend of Friends of the Library Annual Book Sale. It was fantastic. Hardbacks for $1.00, paperpacks for $0.50. Lots of great stuff there, but I ended up buying only a couple reference books, including some on sewing.

More art...Formerly, this was a military installation.

There's sculpture garden, made of parts of submarines partially buried in the ground. Pretty interesting.Eric and I at the top of the kite hill.

Eric took a backwards biking picture, over his head, while we were biking on the Burke Gilman trail.On our forth date, we stopped in this very same spot and took pictures...

More biking/photographic acrobatics. Eric took this picture of us holding hands while biking.Beautiful trees along the trail.

We stopped at a field right off the trail where enthusiasts get together and fly radio-controlled gliders.Some are launched with the aid of rubber catapults

Others are flung into the air like throwing a discus.One kid stopped by to show us a "magic" trick.

Later that night we had dinner with Rod and Shannon Chavez.
