Amanda and I caught up with Katrine last weekend for Bastille Day 2012 in Ballard. We started off walking the Seafood Fair, which had more vendors than seafood, and then headed to a community space on Old Ballard Ave. to play a game of Pétanque (French version of Bocce), sponsored by a local restaurant appropriately named Bastille. (Amanda took the photos that I'm in.)
We beat our opponents, who had held the court for the first three hours and claimed to have been undefeated for the last two years (not so sure about that). Katrine and I decided to retire after our win and drink. I think that's what the French would do, too.
