hollyqueen was up for the weekend again. This time we had a list of specific apartments to visit in our search for a new home. However we started out having dinner with jerichobrown and his wife at The People's Pub in Ballard. While walking from the car we happened across kerrizor who was in the area and out with some friends. Dinner was good and I'll have to go back there to try some of the other dishes they offer.
Saturday was a crazy mess of going from apartment complex to apartment complex. At the end of the day we had two strong contenders and in the end the Gates of Redmond won out with their two-floor townhome. Sadly with all the running around, miscommunication and two raging migranes we weren't able to join intrepid_reason and others for dinner and clubbing. I should know not to schedule so much in one day. After a shower to calm down and relax we had a calm dinner with loree and datavore.
Sunday we gave the apartment complex a money order to hold the apartment for us until next Saturday. Then we did a bit of furniture shopping for a new bed. We found a few that we liked but the promise of a headboard with bookcases in a month led us to wait so I'm off to buy a box springs and mattress that I'll use on the floor for a while.
After bed shopping it was time for tourism. So it was back to Ballard to visit the Chittenden Locks which is the first on the list of sites in the Maritime Heritage Network. It seems that you can go through the locks in a kayak and I might have to do that someday.
