The hottest and Nudest day ever

Today was proclaimed to be the hottest day ever in Seattle - with 103 at the airport - and the nudest day ever at Howell Park; these facts were presented by the National Weather Service and a jolly fat naked man respectively. Tarah and I deemed the naked man to be the official park greeter given his excitement to talk about the park, its history, and its police presence to anyone who seemed curious. According to him the police have taken up a very relaxed stance with regards to the beach. "At times they will drive by on the street level and ask people leaving if anyone down there has any complaints; then promptly leave when the answer is no" says our jolly greater. Tarah and I are no experts of the weather or of the nude levels of Howell Park but it sure felt hot today and there were definitely a lot of us nude folks on the beach tonight. I fricking love Seattle!!

It is sooo nice and HOT

This is such an awesome summer in Seattle. Tarah and I have swam in Lake Washington 4 out of the last 5 days. We live on Union so we just head strait over Madrona to the lake and then a little north to Howell beach. It's my favorite one; very secluded and clothing optional.

Kobe Beef Sliders

This is the first time that I've grilled up little sliders. For some reason little sliders are just more fun to eat than regular sized burgers. It's like the sandwich that your mom cut into bite sized triangles when you were a kid. After our sliders we headed over to Gasworks Park for the fireworks. This year there was only the show at Gasworks Park so we worried it would be even more crowded than normal but actually I think there were fewer people this year. The show was great and we had a nice 4th of July.

Pizza Party

We had a successful oven firing and an incredibly good time on the 3rd. The 20 of us made short work of 23 pizzas. After the pizzas I baked 6 baguettes and finally a puffy pancake (Dutch baby) with raspberries.

You can see plans and other details of the oven at the following.
