change of pace

kids woke on up on sunday and asked for a change of pace.  they didn't feel like racing....unusual, but i welcomed the idea of not loading up bikes, food, etc for an 8 hour day on the course.
instead, we decided to explore some areas that we always see, but from a different perspective.  it was amazing to me that i had never been on the trails that are only 4 miles from the house-  the only thing i didn't like was the lack of solitude.  i had to remind myself that i live in the city!
still, marsh and foster islands  were a nice change of pace.  thanks aaron for bringing us out here!
we usually ride our bikes over this bridge

walking under the montlake bridge for the very first time!

view of the UW shell house

lots of viewing spots from the trail

My family used to go to fosters island all the time on the weekends. My mom would always say it was time for an excursion. Some how in my mind those were only to fosters island, but we probably went elsewhere too!
