Tuesday, 23 Sep – after having taking the Bainbridge ferry over to Seattle, we walked through the city following the footsteps of Sleepless in Seattle…
Yes, exactly the corner where Tom Hanks wonders whether his backside would be considered a “cute butt”… well, well. And here a picture of one of the flower stalls in the market:
Coffee lovers that we are, we couldn’t forego a visit to the very first Starbucks ever – and have mugs to prove it 🙂 Here is a picture of the shop:
We waved good bye to Seattle in the evening from the Bainbridge ferry just as the sun was setting and the night sky was showing off the Space Needle rather nicely.
Wednesday, 24 Sep – after visiting Seattle, we took off from Poulsbo in the morning, saying good bye to the Green Gables room at the Green Cat B&B. The day’s drive would take us past Mount Rainier into Central Oregon, all the way past Fossil and up to Service Creek, where we would spend the night before seeing the Painted Hills in the John Day Fossil Beds National Park… It was a long drive, but the views were simply spectacular, stunning, amazing, awe inspiring (we soon ran out of superlatives to describe the constantly changing scenery and natural artistry – more than I could take in over such a short period of time). I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. … here are those from the first leg of that journey (more tomorrow)
