Summer in Leschi

We don’t take a vacation in the summer, as we don’t want to leave Leschi! The weather is beautiful, the fruits of the garden are bountiful and there’s so much going on! Yes, there are a few downsides with disrupted traffic for those eternal marathons (aren’t those folks fit YET?) and the chaos of Seafair but overall, it’s a good place to be.
