One of the (many) cool things we Seattleites can do is send fresh caught Salmon to our friends in other places. Places where Salmon or (truly) fresh fish isn’t easy to acquire.

In Seattle our fish fly! Perhaps powered by Boeing?

So, yes, I sent dear friends a dead fish*.

The Salmon.

The occasion is, ostensibly, their daughter’s choice to matriculate at the University of Washington. I’m choosing to celebrate her excellent choice of cities to live, learn and explore!

Walking through the market just before the vendors pack up for the night is always restorative. A dear (super neat, fun and funny) pal arrives for the weekend tomorrow so a bunch of fragrant lilacs seemed like a good choice to welcome her!

Lilacs and Rachel’s hoof prints.

*Since I like my friends I had the Salmon filleted. 😉
