In early January I hosted a Craft Day, at which a friend made some props for Annex Theatre’s current offering, Small Town. When I saw the show on Tuesday (you should go, too – it’s running through the 21st of February), I was delighted to see craft day got a shout-out in the program. It’s famous! There were quite a few attendees at the last one, and with Craft Day’s newfound fame, I’m wondering if I need to find a bigger venue. Any ideas?

Last weekend, Jared & I went up to the Skagit River to see the bald eagles (the eagles come to feed on the spawned out salmon). We saw quite a few even though it was the tail end of the season – pictures soon.

In other eagle-related news, I also went last weekend to check out the new sculpture park along the waterfront in Seattle. I’d give it a mixed review. There are some nice works there, made even more impressive by the backdrop of Elliott Bay and the Olympic Mountains, but the layout is awkward at best, and the management needs work. Unfortunately, parts of the park had yet to open, so there were fenced off areas and large crowds, making navigation difficult. On the plus side, the park offers some great views. I will admit that I was wary of moving Calder’s Eagle, but its new home on the water is spectacular.
