David's Trip So Far

My best friend, David, is in Seattle visiting this weekend, so needless to say, I've been a little too busy to blog over the past 3 days. David was my climbing partner back in Sioux Falls, so we've been doing a lot of climbing while he's been out here. We climbed for about 3 hours on Friday at the climbing gym where I work. I thought that David would really love that style of climbing, and he did. I also accomplished a feat that I've been working on in the gym for quite some time. The following video is one of my finally getting this huge dyno (jump from rock to rock). I've only ever seen one other person get this.

Friday night we met some friends downtown on the waterfront and took a ferry over to Bainbridge Island. Once there we walked around for a while and then had dinner at a mexican restaurant and enjoyed great ice cream for dessert. The last time Mandy and I were on a ferry was in November when we were visiting Seattle and the seminary and trying to decide whether we should move half way across the country. It was so fun to be back on that boat and to see how far God has brought us in the past year. What a ride it's been!

Yesterday, David and I spent the day rock climbing outside at this place called Exit 38, cleverly titled due to its location along I-90. It was so fun to be in Creation and see the changing leaves and enjoy a day with David like old times. We had a blast. I'm sure there will be much more to report later, but that's all for now. Peace.

  1. I am so glad that you and David have a chance to spend time together like this. I can just imagine the teasing and laughter and joking and fun the two (three, with Mandy) are having. Keep safe and enjoy this break from the routine.
