Third Stop – Seattle

Our journey around the US continues, and we are currently in Seattle with my younger daughter Elizabeth and her husband Drew. She just moved here in June so this is our first visit to this area. It’s so beautiful and we’re having a great time. I tried to cull through the photos to just show a few of the highlights, but of course being an active city in a beautiful area, I could fill volumes 😉

I really like the Seattle area. There’s a lot of interesting things going on and it’s really beautiful. There seem to be colorful flowers growing everywhere too. Best of all, my daughter and son in law say they are enjoying it, and the transition has gone very well for them. I’ll definitely be happy to come back here on future visits!

Our next stop is Alaska. We’re getting on the cruise ship tomorrow and will be gone for a week. There is internet on the ship but it’s a bit expensive, so I will probably be out of touch until we return to Seattle. When I return though, I’m sure there will be lots of news and photos. I never thought I’d have the opportunity to see Alaska so I’m really excited!

    We took a trip last June to Seattle (I still regret not going to Chihuly exhibit, but we spent hours eating in the Space Needle restaurant–awesome!) and then off on a cruise ship to Alaska. Enjoy your time there! It is amazing! Love Seattle as well and the bus system is funny being underground (ask your daughter about the Underground Tour given as well–very interesting). Happy traveling!

      We did the Chihuly exhibit but not the Space Needle (but it’s on the list for another visit). In one of my future lives I want to be a glass artist so I always have to check out beautiful glass. We considered the Underground Tour and may do it on another visit as well.

      Chihuly has work in a number of places so you never know when you may have an opportunity. And, now that you’ll be living on less, maybe you’ll have more money to travel!

    Live in Columbus, Ohio and we have a lot of Chihuly on display; so glad you were able to experience his works. Visit your family in January and let us know how you like Seattle then; used to live in Portland, Oregon and couldn’t wait to escape the endless gloom and drizzle. Assuming you went to Pike Market and watched the guys toss the salmon back and forth?

      We’re coming back in February so we’ll get to experience the winter wet, gray weather. I told the kids we may stay in their apartment and watch movies all weekend! LOL
      Yes, it was Pike Market but we only saw them toss fish in plastic bags which I thought was less impressive. Catching a slippery fish would be more challenging. It was so crowded though that we were lucky to see anything!

    Kris,
    You’ll love it this time of year. David and I lived there for five years in the 70’s. Make sure you see Palmer where they grow all the big veggies and go down the Seward Hiwy to Kenai where all the fishing it. There is also a glacier off that highway you can stop ad see – actually walk to. I got some fantastic shots there because you can get real close to it – or you could in the 70’s. Have fun!!! Take a jacket.
