It was fun while it lasted.

IMG_1007

Once upon a time it was 90 degrees in August… Gone are the days when we’d dance at Alki Beach at sunset beneath the moon and stars… Until next year!

Thanks to all the volunteers who transported the dance floor, came early to help set up, and brought snacks and driks to share!

By the way, does anyone have space to store the dance floor until next summer?
