Things That I Learned on Vacation

  • It's really hard to breathe at 9000 feet. Fiddling even got me out of breath. Dancing is almost entirely out of the question.
  • Copper River salmon is one of the tastiest fishes known to mankind.
  • The Olympic Peninsula is fantastically beautiful.
  • Raglan sweaters are really, really low fuss. I must knit more of these.
  • Seattle has an awesome bus system.
  • Dale of Norway baby patterns are often just too cute to pass up.
  • The Northwest Folklife festival is gigantic! On Sunday there were easily 500 dancers on the floor. The default dance was contra dance (when there wasn't, say, polka or tango music).
  • Dancing at sea level after having danced at 9000 feet makes your feet do things you never thought possible.

I'm so glad you liked it here! Copper River salmon is glorious... really all wild Alaskan salmon is. If you're interested, we're having a salmon recipe contest and awarding the creator of the best recipe with 15 Pounds of Wild Salmon (three separate 5 lb. shipments). Check it out at MarxFoods.com
