A swell afternoon

I did indeed head up to Marysville for lunch, a movie, and some shopping. Our two nearest movie theaters are at Everett Mall and in Marysville, and are five and ten miles away, respectively. So depending on what's going on with traffic, it's not necessarily a big deal to go twice as far. Plus I wanted to go to WinCo afterward, and the Marysville one's more convenient to their theater and the highway than ours is from our theater. A nice advantage Marysville has is that I haven't been to as many of their restaurants, and I had a very nice paper wrapped chicken (actually in foil) appetizer, plus Szechuan scallops. Really good.

The movie, Don't Breathe, was really good. I recommend it highly if you like high tension.

And for the first time in a while, I got some good clouds on my dashcam. For far too long, we had cloudless, sunny skies, and then we had overcast ones with no detail. Today was pretty, even if it was warmer than I care for.
