The Troll Stroll
One of the things I just love about living in the Seattle area is there is always something new to see and do. A couple weeks ago I met up with a group of fellow EtsyRain members. ("EtsyRain" being the group of crafters in the Seattle area who sell their arts on Etsy.) After starting our late morning with coffee (a must in Seattle). We decided to take in the Fremont Market, which is a wonderful people's market full of crafts, antiques, and food. It was a beautiful day in the neighborhood, especially for Seattle in the winter. I got to meet some great new members, which is always a good time. Then came the stroll to the troll! A troll you say, yes a troll. You can read all about the Fremont Troll here. It was a really fun touristy thing to do on a Sunday afternoon. I took a bunch of pictures that turned out pretty well. However, I was a bit disappointed in the fact that the Troll had been vandalized. The good thing is that the graffiti seemed to just be colored chalk. With a good bath he should be as good as new. If you are ever in the area I encourage you to take a stroll! ~ Thanks for organizing Trina!
