Tribal canoes at Alki


Rolled down to the beach this afternoon to see some of the tribal canoes taking part in this area’s annual tribes journey. Alki is a stop along the way to Squaxin Island in the South Sound which is the site of this years gathering and possibly 130 canoes are headed that way. The support crew on Alki Beach apparently included the great, great, great, great niece and nephew of Chief Sealth who Seattle is named for – pretty cool, huh?
David got home yesterday from his Tokyo & Bangkok trip – only need 2 naps AND an early night to make it through the day but is now off playing racquetball so clearly he recovered ; ) I’m about to get an early start on dinner because I HAVE to watch the game tonight since this afternoon’s surprise news was that Ichiro has been traded to the Yankees, yes….sob – the YANKEES of all people… and guess who we’re playing at 7:10pm?? – you got it ; ( Assuming he’ll be in their lineup it’s a must watch game for me so I’m off to find something to chop up..

About girlonahandcycle

Natural Brit/Naturalized American wife, mom, grandma and all around old broad still happily ignoring my MS (since 1985 - ha!). Every time it slows me down I find a way to speed back up which explains my very cool Tilite wheelchair and Top End handcycle ..........also my ripped arms ; ) Don't get back to the homeland or to other cool places quite as easily or often as I'd like anymore so theoretically my rambling here keeps me a little more connected to far away friends and family.
