Yesterday I loaded up my car with friends and drove to the ferry. Our ultimate goal? An Improv Party that I saw an email about... We listened to a few new CDs (Needtobreathe, Group 1 Crew, Above the Golden State) as we made our way to Gas Works Park in Seattle. It took a long time, but it was sooo worth it. I have a new favorite place.
It was a beautiful day, and the park is so totally my speed. It's got a big mound where people were flying kites, there were two weddings going on, numerous photographers throughout, really cool pipes and industrial leftovers, and it didn't feel crowded at all!
We got straight to work exploring the park and found the "play barn" where a young man was having senior photos while mom and dad provided bits of encouragement. Seth nearly got blown away in a windstorm.Then, we ran into a person I know! We were in the right place for the Improv! :) As happens sometimes, there was a switching around of sunglasses/glasses. Turns out, I missed my decade:
I soooo should have been in the 50's.
After that bit of exploring and socializing, we got to enjoy the work of Clean Slate Improv. I laughed so hard I gave myself a headache.
I am very pleased to report that they used my suggestions several times.
When they were done, we all stood around talking until the sun was going down and a couple people were so hungry they actually ate the Clif Bars I brought with me. So, we caravanned to Gorditos, home of the infant sized burrito. I didn't have one, but what I did have was delicious. (A veggie taco.) This is half of the burrito that the guys across from me had:
Gives new meaning to "food baby".
By then it was getting late, so we headed back to the ferry, and hence home. Long day, but so wonderful.
