Full marks for wonderfulness (I know, I know but it's my blog and I can make words up if I want to) goes to my husband...Kevin!
He planned a (semi because he did tell me about it a day before) surprise evening away for the two of us in Seattle. We had a lovely, relaxing, day and a half.
We stayed here bordering on downtown in an old area of Seattle. It was quaint and beautiful loaded with old fashioned charm. We got to walk up to our third floor room because the building was built before elevators, the floors were hardwood and the plumbing reminded us of the house we left at home and are renovating, in otherwords, we loved it!
What did we do with all our glorious free time? Well, mostly we ate...yummy! And walked and talked and looked at the sights. It seems just about the perfect one day get away to me!
Kev even got some work in....
I loved some of the old buildings. It's much like Vancouver but I rarely have time to look when I'm at home. We're always rushing from one place to another without stopping to enjoy the history around us.
We decided to take the long way home. We drove and drove wondering why we chose to do this extra long journey when we came accross this....
A bridge joins the Island to the mainland and we happened upon it suddenly as we came around the corner. It took my breath away.
Thanks hon for the amazing President's day (hey we can celebrate it even if we aren't Americans!)
