You would think we had planned it, the way we were greeted by colorful autumn leaves and perfect weather everywhere we went along our road trip. In reality, we were just really lucky. After our stops in Crater Lake, Portland, and a brief stop in Tacoma, We arrived in Seattle to bright sunny skies in the mid-sixties. Our first stop, Gas Works Park.
Autumn! Young, Howard, and Vince.
Love this leaf pile.
We stayed at our friend Jennie’s ridiculously awesome place. This is the view of the Seattle Space Needle out her window.
On day two, we walked through the Olympic Sculpture Park to get to Pike Place.
Love the Calder against the sea and skies.
Seattle Center– Space Needle and the Experience Music Project.
Lynn and Young– we met up with Lynn for lunch at Paseo.
And then the most amazing oyster happy hour at The Walrus and the Carpenter. Best $1 oysters ever. Vince models by the entrance.
And Young too.
Finally, one last shot from Jennie’s bedroom window on the morning we left for Vancouver– the only non-sunny day of our entire trip.
Lovely as always, Seattle! Next up, Vancouver.
