I went on a day trip to Seattle last week with a group of friends to go gallery hopping. We managed to fit a lot in during the short amount of time we were in the city. I did not take as many photos as I wish I had, so there is a lot of terrific inspiring art I can’t share. The ones I did photograph showcase a very random selection of things.

It was a terrific trip with a fun group of friends. I was happy to visit a few new-to-me galleries, that I will definitely revisit the next time I am in Seattle.

In a rare turn of events Boris and I took the day off mid-week and got ourselves out of town. We decided to drive to Squamish to do some exploring, as neither of us have been there in years. We stopped at Shannon Falls along the way, visited the estuary trail for a walk, then lunch at Fergies, and a longish hike through Alice Lake Provincial Park.
We had perfect weather before the rain returned the next day.

I took last week off from work and my residency and spent a few days on Bowen Island with Boris and his family. It has been unrelentingly hot the last few weeks, and it was good to spent time walking in the forest, splashing in the ocean, napping in a cool place, and reading.
