*Update* Just a couple more photos I forgot to include from my trip:
5 day weather forecast - Hard to see but rain 3 out of the 5 days. Yes I actually had a bit of a melt down when I saw this. My mind can't actually contemplate rain in July, or August or September, October. November...):
Hotel view at night:
Finally some photos from my Seattle trip. I didn't have my camera with me at all times so there was a lot more sights and scenes that I missed. Like my outing with Karen. So bummed about that but we know in due time there will be plenty more get togethers so we'll capture some photos soon. For now my computer is acting funny (getting really hot) and my head is starting to throb so I'll just post the photos and mini captions for each. Can't think too much right now, makes my head hurt. Plus I think a bug crawled into my ear. I keep jabbing my finger in it hoping that if it's in there I'm somehow smashing him to bits but then if he dies he won't be able to crawl back out so maybe I should just let him try and maze his way out of my ear canal on his own. I just hope he's not a big pregnant female (I guess that would make he a she) who is nesting on my ear drum while birthing 1,000 bug babies. I may have to take the Dust Buster to my ear later tonight. We have a special long nozzle type attachment and I've used it to suck up bugs before (never inside my ear) but if Tom's away and a bug, beetle, spider, crustacean, etc. invades our home, I will suck him up with the Dust Buster and then throw the Dust Buster in the back yard and leave it there until Tom comes home to empty it. Why the hell I shared all this right now I don't know. My head still hurts.
Enough of this, onto the pics. In order of how they happened (sort of).
From the plane: (duh...that was obvious)
Another plane shot right before we landed:
On the tarmac (it was still early like 9am):
View from the hotel room (clouds cleared as the day went on):
View from the neighborhood we will most likely live in (clouds back):
Cute little street with pubs and shops near Pike Place Market (sun out again):
Sign telling you where to deposit your umbrellas (this wasn't the only one and that made me very sad):
Nordstrom store in the city (blue sky + Nordstrom = me happy):
Chris Isaak concert at winery. I caught the pick at the end of the show. Good times.
Cute little restaurant attached to an Inn close to the winery:
Pikes Place Market. Soooooo much fun. So much to see, do, eat, drink, people watch:
Another Pike's photo. Enlarge this one and look at the lady in the green shirt. Is she giving me a dirty look on purpose? I think she is.
Pretty flowers on top of the store fronts of the market:
View from the top of the street near the market (btw, this hill was a bitch to walk up after a martini at the pub):
