Sweet Seattle Memories

 Back to work today. We awoke in Dallas and it was already 80 degrees. My car this afternoon read over 100. Sigh. Ray said I'm not allowed to whine. However, see these cloudy Seattle skies - loved it and the temps in the 70s.  Space Needle is a must see and do.
 Next door is the Chihuly glass garden.  Love the Space Needle reflection
 Onward to the EMP - experimental music project museum. We explored the whole place.
 Took a dinner break at the 5 Points Café - my favorite meal - a salmon BLT and home fries. Boy, it was tasty. Ray enjoyed excellent fish and chips.
Frank Gehry knows how to design swooshy buildings. It was way cool.  Lots more pics to bore you folks. Stay tuned through the weekend.  We had SO much fun.

    1. take notes from my blog and you won't go wrong. The 5 points was a dive, but it served great food

  3. Great pictures! I especially like the one of the reflection of the space needle in the globe. (Very artsy fartsy!)

    Salmon BLT! That's one of my favorites. Our local Irish pub smokes their own salmon for the sandwiches. Heavenly!

    Happy weekend! (Stay cool, if ya can!)

  4. My son went to Seattle a couple months ago for five days. He loved it. Surprisingly, there wasn't a cloud in the sky for the entire time he was there.

    1. they've been dry and quite a bit warmer than normal. Ray and I caught a cool week, thank goodness. The city has a unique vibe and anyplace on water has added atmosphere
