Our business meetings, no really we have meetings, sometimes begin with a latte or herb tea. And then the ramble, this time pre-Christmas Ballard.

Gnarly old buildings, birds, and decorative store fronts caught our eye.

We wanted to live in this shop, slow down, study each display, each exquisite piece of handmade art, and then make some of our own. Mind blowing.

This fortunate puppy seemed to be free to roam the streets and was taking full advantage. Free perhaps, but obviously, well loved.

Seattle. To bus, bike, walk or pay to park? The ramble was perfect for us. Java, local shopping, chats with store keepers and each other, and finally the sweetest puppy. Happy Holidays.
