Chugging along

Yesterday was a nice day off even though I was flying solo for most of it. I started with a short walk down at Edgewater Beach. 1.8 miles, one of my shortest ever. My physical therapist said I should try walking more often, but keep it short for now and stretch before, during, and after. Stopping to stretch in the middle was certainly weird. Another weird thing was that the gates at the beach were open, even though I didn't think they'd be. My theory is that people came there late Tuesday night to light firecrackers, because I saw a lot of those laying around. The gates don't lock, so anyone can open them. The port worker who showed up to open them happened to arrive right as I was at my car for the middle stretches and asked if I opened them. I bet he didn't believe me when when I said I didn't.


I wanted to see Incredibles 2 but wasn't in the mood for a theater full of kids, so I finally went to Cinebarre, an adults-only theater with food and alcohol down in Mountlake Terrace. My lunch there was a bison burger, which was decent. I'll definitely go back once in a while, but I really wish Everett had a similar theater.

It's pretty far South, so I decided to go to Central Market in Mill Creek on the way back. It's the kind of store where everything's delicious but also expensive, so I'm glad it's far enough away that I never go more than a couple of times a year.
