Pine Street on a Saturday Afternoon

I rose out of my rhinovirus-induced stupor this afternoon to accomplish a very important task - getting rid of our extraneous footwear. After two years in this apartment, the closet has collected a lot of shoes, and it was time to send some of them off to a place where someone would actually get some use out of them. Lucky for me, Z-Coil (on Pine right by the dogpark) has a Soles 4 Souls drop bin, so I could get rid of the shoes and do a good deed at the same time.

Now that the weather is better (or at least not crappy), Pine is getting pretty lively again. Pedestrians are out and about, people are sitting outside again, and all the haunts are full - Traveller's, Stumptown, Bauhaus, etc. Crocuses and daffodils are blooming, all the little birdies are chirping...there's even a Sidewalk Vintage sale on Bellevue and Pine.

Crowds, flowers, garage sales- ah, the Hill in Spring.
