A Fine Seattle Day

I was very lucky to have a day out in Seattle. My buddy Jon drove us all the way from Portland (about a six hour round trip) so that I could check out Seattle while I am 'in the hood'.

We had a fabulous day checking out Pike Place Market

eating fish and chips

Taking a ride to the top of the Space Needle

Check out those snow covered mountains behind me.
It gave me such delight to see them in all their majestic glory.

My buddy Jon.
We haven't seen each other for over 6 years but it's as if no time has passed at all.
Don't you love those kind of friendships?

Found this little gem. You know how I love to find a little 'Message from the Universe'. I particularly like the way I accidentally captured the words 'any time' as well.

So, that's Seattle.

Tomorrow I'm going to check out downtown Portland and see what I find. Stay tuned for that, and for a post about the gorgeous little lady of the house here in Portland.

Today, I'm having a pajama day. Catching up with myself and with you. Only 3 sleeps till I head home now. I can't believe it.


  1. cathy i love it.
    i love that you are taking in so many wonderful places.
    don.t try to absorb it all right now.
    just enjoy.
    there will be plenty of time back home to figure it all out.
    those fish and chips look sooooo good.
    reminds me of being in london.
    do you get good fish and chips in australia?
    missing you dear girl.
    (p.s. hope you are feeling better)

  2. Thanks for sharing snippets of your adventure; it looks like you are having a great time. I love the way the universe is chasing you down – half way around the world to let you know to have fait in yourself. I think you will need to print that one out for your work space when you get home!

  3. what wonderful pics...Seattle is on my bucket list!!!

    i especially love your "note from the universe" .... and the capture of anytime made it that much better!!!

    enjoy the rest of your time on your vaca!!


  4. Those mountains are glorious! You look relaxed, which is always a good thing. Enjoy your day of rest, and the next couple of days that you have left in America. We sure enjoyed having you here! Come back anytime.

    The U.S.A (well...really just little ol' me)

  5. Great photos. It's all going so quickly!
    Enjoy your pyjama day.

  6. I'm ever curious as to what people thing and feel when they see bits like these, and also where they come from - whoever wrote it, what were they thinking and feeling at the time?

    Sounds like you're having a fantastic time. :)

  7. you are just the BEST at finding Messages From The Universe!!

    so glad you are enjoying your time off here =-)

  8. Were there beautiful flowers at the markets? Did you see the flying fish? I loved Seattle!!

  9. i must have missed this post ... i love your messages from the universe. it shows how tuned in you are. my head is obviously in the clouds (to put it politely) and i just miss them. love your travel diary.

  10. Those kinds of friendships are magical.

    Again, it is so wonderful to see you having a good time and enjoying a break from the every day.
