Bus Stop on a Steep Street

The art is level, but the sidewalk slopes downhill. . . A colorfully painted bus shelter brightens spirits in the First Hill neighborhood.

Cafe Palma at the Sorento Hotel

Pleasant weather and pleasant sidewalk seating.

The Sorento Hotel

A seven story 4 star hotel at the top of First Hill, a welcome change from tourist areas and a quieter setting than downtown.

Looking Rather British

This station wagon at the Sorento Hotel lends a European feel to things.

Broadway Dance Step Hesitation

Dancing in the streets is a popular pastime on Broadway in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. Curious, but not wanting to look too stupid, we stand and look at the Fox Trot Weave steps outside the restaurant where we ate dinner. (There are 8 different sets of dance steps along a two block section of Broadway, made and installed in the sidewalk by a sculpture inspired by the old Arther Murray dance studio intructions, and enjoyed by the neighborhood for many years).
