My husband and I walked 4.8 miles in the rain on Saturday but I'm not counting any of those miles in my total because I'd walked all the streets before. We were downtown, going to a Sounders game; a wonderful daughter had given us tickets. As we wound our way through the Pioneer Square area, we noted a green haze and heard music.
We turned the corner and were engulfed in the parade of fans following the Sound Wave marching band to the stadium.
The excitement continued inside the stadium - Kansas City didn't have a chance. After 90 scoreless minutes, the Sounders won their season opener 1-0 in the 4 minutes added time. This was another great Seattle experience!
My goal was to walk every public street in the city of Seattle. Four years after starting I have logged 2,722 miles and completed the goal. The orange and red areas on the map reflect the neighborhoods I walked. Brown areas represent some private roads and properties I did not walk.
A list of some of my favorite discoveries and an index of walks by neighborhood can be found in the March 2015 posts and in the very bottom post June 8, 2010.
