I can never resist a gathering this colorful.

And here, was the Sakura Con; a gathering of a different sort than yesterday and day before’s NorWesCon. This event focused more towards the appreciation and partaking of Japanese anime and manga. Much of the action was inside the convention center, where the event was centered. However, the heavy rains of the last days finally stopped. Many…

Stranger worlds are ever close..

And here, are some pics from my great adventure at the annual NorWesCon science fiction and fantasy convention. This was my first attendance to this event (now in its 37th year); of which I had a grand time discovering new fiction, turning strangers into friends, and cheering on the boldest among us.

There will be more pics (and more musings) for a few alt-pop…

I took a wrong turn..

Not a bad thing, as I love new sights. This time, walking through the neighborhood of Meadowbrook, within the Lake City area in the distant Northeast region of Seattle.

Around is Meadowbrook Lake, along Thornton Creek, in what used to be a sewer treatment plant from decades ago. Now it’s reverted somewhat to it’s natural state with the help of locals, over the years. You…

The best sign of the fresh Spring..

These Yoshinocherry trees, are scattered throughout the Seattle area. Now, they are full and amazing. This is a nice reward to us locals for putting up with the plentiful showers of early March. Now, the weekend weather is grand and sunny. Many cherry trees, you can easily find Downtown, International District, Capitol Hill and the neighboring regions…

Under the great Pike Market of Seattle, inner Post Alley…

You may notice ever-changing art; boggling and fantastic, ugly and beautiful.

Behind and further down, there is an entire wall of chewed bubblegum built over the past decades (pics for another day on that). Tourists tend to focus their attention towards the gum, while I feel this is more deserving of such appreciation.

The name of that horse is Charlie.

I didn’t get the name of the policewoman, who was very nice. Together, they are part of Seattle’s police department’s Mounted Patrol Unit. This local mounted police force have been a part of the Downtown watch for over 100 years. Currently, the cost and existence of Seattle’s mounted police unit are supported by charitable donations from the Seattle Police…
