Seattle Getaway – In the Light

What better way to spend Thanksgiving weekend than with a bit of travel?  The hubster and I made the three hour trek with the greatest of ease, relishing the sunshine and all the wonders of our favorite city to the north.  Here’s a bit of what we saw by day.  Night time photos next week…

This is what Mt. Rainier looks like when you drive by really fast.  Zoom!

I love photographing bridges…

Leaves fall like anywhere else.

Making friends.

Olympic Sculpture Park

Wandering Rocks

Tony Smith

Typewriter Eraser, Scale X

Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen

Roy McMakin

This Eagle has landed.

Alexander Calder

We feel blue.

Let it shine.

Rose hips and habitat restoration on the Sound.

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer – it’s digital.

These are a few of my favorite things – art, bees, flowers, and words.

Hello gorgeous.


Details like this are the tops.  How long do you reckon this has been here?

The Seattle Public Library

Rem Koolhass, Architect.

Through the mesh.


It means what it says.

We saw twirling square dance dresses – do-si-do.

Volunteer Park Conservatory

Oxygen rich, warm, and humid.

Smells like heaven.

Another bridge and beautiful sky.

Happy 87th Birthday Grandma – we love you!

    Looks like a wonderful week-end. Memories that last and meeting up again with your favorite places. Stirs the heart…. Nice shoes, too. And, I am jealous, for Seattle is on my list of faves also….

    Did everybody in Seattle leave town for Thanksgiving weekend? Looks like you had the sculpture garden — and most of Seattle reserved just for you two. Enjoyed the photo tour.
