Fall hit Seattle overnight, literally. Thursday was sunny and warm as it had been for an unbelievable, nearly-record-breaking number of consecutive days in August and September. Then Friday was overcast and drizzly all day, and I knew the end had finally come. I headed out for Phinney Farmer’s Market anyway, not wanting to miss my last couple of opportunities before the markets closed for the year.

The usually abundant colorful produce was looking sparse, but singer Katy Webber added a bright note to the otherwise gray day. An early childhood music teacher, Katy offers ukulele lessons as well as birthday party entertainment. To encourage young audience participation, she put out a box of tambourines and maracas, which were used with glee. The kids moved too fast for my pen to keep up with, but I enjoyed the lively percussion just the same.
Summertime, I’ll miss you!
