Seattle, Washington !!


Pics are here of our holiday so far. In spite of hearing some little trollop in the room next door squelch and squeel like a stuck pig, it's been a great few days. We have been to/seen/done: Museum of Flight including their exhibit on the history of flight attendants and tours of JFK's Air Force One and a British Airway's Concorde; Washington State ferry ride to Bremerton and back including a private tour of the bridge by the 2nd Mate; walked Capitol Hill twice; had a fantastic dinner at Assaggio's and said hi to our friend, the owner, Mauro; had dinner, drinks, and Ding Dongs with several great bloggers from Blogography, My 2 Cents, and KristinWoodKnits; walked Pioneer Square; saw a Chinese New Year parade; visited Pike Place Market. Tomorrow we stop for a tour of Boeing's aircraft factory at Everett, Washington; make a stop at the Peace Arch at the US/Canadian border, and continue on into downtown Vancouver. We're staying at a gay-owned B&B and having dinner with a couple more bloggers that we have never met. Great times ahead!

Good to have seen/done you in Seattle! Safe travels!

If Dave did anyone it must have happened before we got there or after we left. While *we* were there it was all tea and prayer and bible study! Come to think of it, Blair and Dave did seem a bit out of breath when we walked in...

i think it would be fun to rent an RV and circle the country meeting fellow bloggers... you think we could get ELLEN to pay for it??? ha!!! or maybe OPRAH?? we'll only visit sick bloggers!!!

Wayne said...

Sounds like much fun!
I loved Vancouver!

Seeing those photos of the stewardess uniforms takes me back to the time when Braniff had colorful planes and the stewardesses (they didn't know they were flight attendants yet) wore designer uniforms.

That was well before Southwest started the cattle call roundup of passengers and showed the Clampitts that they too could fly! Maybe I've romanticized air travel from the late '60s-early '70s?

Jealous! Enjoy!

Java said...

Oh, what fun! I like "just david"s idea of traveling around the continent meeting up with bloggers. I'll drive! Of course we need to go to Canada, since there are so many fantastic guys in that great country.

About the trollop next door: you should have given HER an ear full! Let her hear some real screaming and moaning.

Java said...

Happy Birthday, Lewis! Hope you have a fantastic day.

Billy said...

Damn I'm green! Looks like fun. Cold, but fun... Today is SWELTERING here in good old SA.
