in a perfect world of yancies: Lovely Day for a Bike Ride

Lovely Day for a Bike Ride

As you might have seen over on the Twitter feed, we enjoyed a mostly lovely ride on the Cheshiahud Trail around Lake Union on Sunday.

Here's a little map I made:

In case the photo-in-map trick doesn't work, here we are, about to ride back up (yikes) to Capitol Hill:
nice day

Kind of a weird trail, since it seems to spend a couple of miles in the parking lots of various yachting shops, and briefly was on some railroad ties (guess it's still under construction?), but there were some great water views, and we got some up close views of some cool looking houseboats, as seen in the background above.

And what great weather!

Oh, I hope you're enjoying some of the experimenting I've been doing with labels and such lately. That "cloud" over on the right should give you some sense of the focus of the various posts, and hopefully it's a fun way to organize things here ... (Meta note: since I'm talking about things like organizing the blog, this post will have to have the "tech" label. No "meta" label at this point.)

All right, back to work. Happy Tuesday, reader.


  1. Looks like a cool ride, and I wouldn't mind living in that houseboat!

    I don't see any "cloud."

  2. I could see spending a weekend there, but I don't think I'm cut out for life on the water...

    I've looked at the blog with four different browsers and both major platforms (including IE on a Dell, which I believe matches what you're using), and the label cloud shows up in all of them, between the Recent Comments and the Twitter feed. So I'm not sure what to think, but I promise to keep worrying about it.

    Cheers, and Happy Thursday!

  3. I was talking to my boss about our ride and I mentioned the houseboats; she told me that she had been to a Christmas party on one (apparently a relative lived on the water for a couple of years) and the host of said party was talking about how the gathering required careful planning and staggering of guests so as to not have too many people on the boat at once. I guess we would have a similar problem in our apartment, but not for fear of sinking. :)
