Hello friends,
Here are my recollections from the trip I took back in August.
Thank you for visiting this journal!

Getting to the rail
At the rehearsal lunch, Mom and I sat across from Dexter’s brother Nestor, Nestor’s wife, and Nestor’s mother-in-law. They were so friendly. We mentioned that we’ll have one day of sightseeing, and Nestor and Hollie offered to show us around- sweet!

Here’s the short of it- we went to the Seattle Space Needle, Chihuly Garden and Glass, had lunch at The Crab Pot, dessert at (I can’t remember what it was called), and poked in to several shops. We just missed the fish tossing though, and hiking, and the Experience Music Project (designed by The Frank Gehry), so we’ll have to make another trip of it!



The Chihuly Garden and Glass was crazy! So many pieces, large and small, with a whole outdoor garden- I was satisfied at the amount of objects and views!










The Crab Pot was delicious! We got seating outside- it was a beautiful day. Only one guy with us so we ordered individual plates. It was all so good. I had the crab-stuffed salmon. Dessert was salted caramel ice cream- also yum!







While making the trek down to, and back from, The Crab Pot, we took a lot of stairs down and back up again. It was a workout but I made it okay. I wasn’t way out of breath by the end of it and felt quite at health, so thank goodness that I started Healthy Go much before this trip! Mom had to take a couple of breaks on the way back up but she did well too.

It was a gorgeous day! We packed in as much as we could and our wonderful tour hosts helped so much. I don’t know what more to say but it was a good day.
