I have such great memories of the park at the Falls, but I have to 'fess up that the *boat* I recalled from my childhood wasn't quite as big as memory made it to be :o :)

Hey gang,

Misfit, I actually live in Northern Edmonds. Our house backs onto Meadowdale Park, so from my writing room I look out on trees and the bird feeders in our backyard. Right now I'm watching a male Pileated woodpecker on the suet feeder. (The Woodie Woodpecker type with the brilliant red crest.)

MLE, I'm not familiar with Vivace, where abouts is it? I'll have an excuse now to drop by for a mocha while I'm making a delivery to the Gargoyle store. Yes, we have a store in the University District called Gargoyles statuary. (Where else but Seattle?) If you Google them you can check out their online catalogue, which includes a lot of my pieces.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.
Location: California Bay Area

Vaughn, one location is at 227 Yale Ave N., in Alley 24 across from REI. Vivace Espresso Bar at Brix is at 532 Broadway Ave East. and they have a sidewalk bar at 321 Broadway Avenue East.
Not that I've ever been to any but the former flagship store.
