Birthday Weekend

2008 Sep 4, 11:30

A photo of the Seattle skyline in the distance over water.This past weekend Sarah and I went to Salty's on Alki. I had never been down to the Alki area so that was fun and I took a few photos while we were there. It turns out they were the last few photos I'll be taking with that camera as it turned itself on in my pocket and the lens extension mechanism broke for the inner most lens. So now I'm looking for a new camera, preferably one that has a lock mechanism so I can't accidentally turn it on in my pocket. The dinner was good and Salty's has a great view. On an unrelated note, the next day we went to an Audi dealership and test-drove the new 2009 A4 which was fun. I'm happy with my car but Sarah's feeling antsy.
