Then we walked from there to a Whole Foods market which is near Seattle center and a possible source of food for the Ring
Then came the highlight of the day - the mystery event that had been planned and talked about for many months!! We met up with Bob and Ann and had an early meal at Toulouse Petit (I think that is correct name). Lovely place, good food and not too big servings which can be a problem here! THEN we went to ----the Roller Derby!!! That is a concept I did not know about even, and was presented as a counter-culture experience to balance our Ring!!! It is very tough, athletic and tattooed girls roller skating round a ring - 2 teams trying to block each other and getting round first.....lots of noise and action, and completely impossible to describe...you need to be there. It was some Seattle teams versus New York teams. We saw the Seattle Rain of Terror play the Wall Street Traitors, and then the Rat City Rollers versus the Gotham
All Stars....(we did leave before it was all over....there is a time when enough is enough, but is certainly was a new experience of a different world. Wow!
On return had a little wine nightcap to settle down...
