After I finished my long run, we headed out to my parents' house on the peninsula. We took the ferry out there and I was pretty disappointed because it was a very foggy and overcast day. Not the best way to represent yourself, Seattle!

After I got off work the next day, the weather cleared up (thank goodness!), so I took Kali to the Seattle waterfront and the "Great Wheel".
I don't know why they call it a "Great Wheel" and not just the Seattle Ferris Wheel, but whatever. They should've asked me to name it. Obviously I would have named it "Rodolfo The Wheel" or something equally as awesome.
I wasn't terribly impressed with the wheel. It was nice and I think it's a beautiful addition to the Seattle waterfront at night, but I think you get a better view from the ferry of Seattle, and the waterfront gives you the same view of the sound. Next time, I think I will just take visitors up the Space Needle, since it is similar in price and so iconic.
Afterwards, I took Kali to Alki Beach in West Seattle. We started at one end and walked a mile or two to the other end. We had a lovely little walk, although it was a bit chilly. I love Alki. It is one of my favorite places in Seattle, especially when it isn't super crowded. You really can't beat the view of Seattle!

After dinner, our waiter brought us their Three Milk Cuban Flan on the house! Holy cow it was so good! We dominated it.

photography school immediately.
The next morning, we met my trail running friends for a run around Discovery Park again. The weather was brisk, but it was perfect for running!
|Waiting for everyone else to arrive. Perfect time for car photos!|
|Garmin says 7 trail miles in 1:11. Garmin probably lost signal, |
so it was closer to 8 miles.
Kali loved watching the flying fish and we made sure to see the pig, the first Starbucks and all the lovely vendors.
|No, Sir, I really don't want to kiss your fish!|
|Ready to head underground.|

No idea why it was boring and not turned on!
