So, for our anniversary we decided to kayak down the cut from Lake Washington to Union Bay and eat at Ivar's on the water. We did this way back in April of 2007 on a date when I was visiting Seattle before graduation. Anyway, it is freaking scary kayaking down the cut! It's a narrow canal with big boats going way to fast and lots of waves from their wake. I paddled my heart out until we got to Portage bay where you can see the house boats. I think that I was just nervous because the last time I was in a kayak was at Shem's Aunt Barbara's house in Annapolis, MD and her's were super tippy, so when I tried to get out onto the dock above me I tipped...it was very gross. Thankfully this time I didn't tip.
Aside from having a fun time kayaking, dinner was amazing! Shem ate this white salmon and I had some king crab. I love fresh seafood and I love me some crab! We also ordered this amazing dessert. It was a chocolate cake creme brulee of calorie goodness!
The kayaking, food, and company was perfect...thanks Love. :)

This bench is made of the most beautiful wood! Very good craftsmanship.
