Walking stick in a strange land

Walking down not even the steepest slope I've attempted in Seattle I went flying forward - think I tripped on the paving stones but time slowed enough for me to be certain I couldn't do anything to make pitching face forward any easier, and enough for me to worry about the impact on my phone and camera and laptop. They're all fine of course, but I have one bruised knee and one wrenched ankle. No pain when it's iced, elevated and in the right position, stretchy ache when it's down and pain when I try to put weight on it. Where do I find a walking stick in Seattle? Hopping around holding on to Simon's shoulder is a temporary measure :)

Ouch

Ouch indeed -- sympathy! Hope it's less painful now -- where is photo of hi-tech crutch? (No, not Simon)

Ouch! Sympathy indeed.

There is a cure - margaritas and seafood.

You left a found walking stick at my front door, a nice gift. Shall I bring it with me, as I see you need it now :-)
