Here is a photo journey of our recent mini vacation. I'm glad you have been able to "visit" Seattle with us.
|Our beloved Space Needle got a new "do" for her 50th birthday. |
I happen to like it, though I think I am in the minority around here
|2012 Monster Motorcross Semi Finals (I think). :-)|
|The 9th lap of the MAIN EVENT|
|Number 29, the winner of the big bikes!|
|Sarah at Pike Place Market|
|We spent about an hour just at the tide pools. |
They are a very family friendly aquarim.
|Baby (coho?) salmon|
|Two Harbor Seals-- we were told.|
|Sarah was the map reader (Educational!)|
|Our tour guide on the Harbor Cruise|
|The oldest daily newspaper in the state, I think, the Seattle PI.|
Now on-line only
|Our awesome mountain!|
|California Sea Lions|
|Century Link (Formerly Qwest) Field: Home of the Seahawks|
Safeco Field: Home of the Seattle Mariners!
So, the next time you need to get away, do it. Take the family and go explore--even if its a getaway in your back yard. Do some educational tours and have fun exploring your own neighborhood. Sarah learned stuff from experts in their fields and little tidbits about our area that she will remember for a life time. Later on Monday when we were driving toward Discovery Park and Fort Lawton she pointed out the grain terminal. She became fascinated with the cranes and made up songs/poems about them. A rich educational experience! I am so glad we went!
Oh and if you ever get to Seattle, blow our beloved needle a kiss!
