We spent a day at Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle, where we saw new and old buskers and the familiar fish market, gum wall, and original Starbucks. These Gospel singers, two of a quartet, were fantastic. My friend had told me about them and we were excited to get to hear their deep, rumbling voices harmonize.
These talented, twang-voiced sisters sang haunting folk country songs, switching instruments and blending their flexible and strong voices. They were definitely my other favorite!
Yesterday afternoon was a delightful time at Lake Tapps with a friend's family. All the younger ones fished and each were successful (and so excited! Their faces were pure joy). Joel was patient in helping at each call of a tangled line or lost worm. Nate also water-skied for the first time!
We have less than a week left in America and the time will hopefully be spent in needed rest, reading, study, and sharing. I got my partner for the Lovely Package Exchange today, which was exciting!
