I went to a garage sale (advertised as a "Community Garage Sale", which usually means lots of people selling lots of stuff, but turned out to be a couple of people selling a few things) at the Dimond Park Field House, where I bought a green corduroy shirt which is a size smaller than I usually wear, but which fit me (hooray!). I also got a lace valance for my kitchen, which will be a little lighter than the dark blue one I had in there, and a set of sheets for the bed in the guest room/office.
We heard Latin music (not Gregorian Chant, but salsa) coming from the mezzanine, so Jeanie and I went up to explore, and discovered a Zumba demonstration. Zumba is an exercise method that uses Latin dance music and dance routines. It's a lot more fun than your average aerobics class, and the instructor had a real body, as opposed to the bionic bodies that most instructors have. Jeanie and I did the demo and had a lot of fun. I may take the class...
Then we went for a walk on the new Auke Lake trail, which skirts the lake and goes through the woods. We kept up a steady chatter to warn the bears we were on our way into their territory. We didn't see any bears, just fellow walkers and a couple of dogs that looked like bears until they came up and greeted us.
Then off to the Hot Bite, the hamburger/milkshake/fish and chips joint next to Auke Bay. Then home for a little bit, then back out to the Valley for dinner at The Broiler and a movie (Larry Crowne).
I'm exhausted, but happy to have Jeanie around to play with! She extended her visit for another couple of weeks!
Here are some pictures from today:

We used to imagine that fairies and gnomes lived in these hollow trees!

It was a perfect day!
