We were in Seattle during the Great Heat Wave of 2009 when shadows were greatly appreciated, particularly from that little old sun-avoider, me. (Hard to believe, when I just brought the dog in from the snow now, and had to brush her, then get ice-balls off her feet.)
However, there I am, adjusting my hat beside the totem pole in the third photo. I loved the deep shade there, with little dapples of sunlight in the foreground. When I found deep shade, I just wanted to stay, and never venture into the sun again, but we were on our way to Safeco Field to see the Toronto Blue Jays play the Seattle Mariners, so Dick hustled me along. Never try to stand between a man and his baseball game!
Temperatures in Seattle reached a record 103F (39 Celsius) while we were there.
