Ferry--on this ride there were some musicians that were playing for the passengers. One of them reminded me of a High School friend. The Puget Sound is a beautiful waterway...
Seattle--I LOVE this place:) When I lived there I liked the U of W area (go Huskies!), Space Needle, Golden Gardens, Alki Beach and Woodland Zoo -- besides other areas. Now, of course, the traffic is worse and getting around is a bit difficult at times. Still it never fails to thrill me to go there...
Hurricane Ridge -- this is part of the Olympic Mts and you can access it by a fairly short drive up (and I do mean UP) from Port Angeles. It is worth your time if you love mountains and amazing views!! And as long as you are in this area, you might as well drive to Crescent Lake when you are done up here. I LOVE the Olympic Peninsula!
This is my son, years ago, in the Hurricane Ridge area. See--all of us LOVE animals!
And here is the famous, totally awesome National Park lodge at Longmire in the Mt Rainier National Park. If you go here, you have to walk the Trail of the Shadows (and tell me what you think of it) and then visit Narada Falls, Paradise Valley & Paradise. Actually everything is worth seeing in the park so have fun and spend some time there! For a photo of Paradise, in late spring, see the post here. Still need to find my other photos from Mt Rainier--the Paradise Valley was amazing in the snow!
OK--itching subsiding and I am really, really tired so night all!
