This is how it all began: a trip to Seattle from St. Paul!
Because DH and I had not been on a train for several decades, we decided to take the Empire Builder. The staff on the train were remarkably friendly, effiicient and they worked incredibly hard for long hours. Our compartment looked great in the brochure, but in reality it is very teeny-tiny. The couch makes up into a bed and a bunk comes down from the ceiling. Pretty cramped quarters. It was "a fun" experience because of the passing scenery and the friendly passengers you meet on the train, but once was enough!
PS. On the last day in Seattle, I lost the journal you see on the table in the compartment. Sad!

Yesterday I walked around our neigborhood, trying to find more weather vanes. There aren't many, but this one is atop a cupola on the roof of a garage three houses down from ours. I've concluded that the vanes usually are on top detached garages of homes built probably between 1930-1950. Of the three that I posted, which is your favorite?

Perfect weather for the marathon: sun, blue sky, and cooler temperatures. This year I got to Summit Avenue at the wrong place and the wrong time. The trees produced alternating patches of sun and shade plus the major share of the runners had already gone past the block when I had arrived. Next year I will arrive earlier and select a better place to photograph. The variety of marathoners always makes it interesting!
