Lori and I got to go to Seattle, too, when we were on our trip!
Neither of us had ever been there before, but I have a good friend who moved there two years ago to be closer to her daughter and her family, who live in Gig Harbor, Washington.
We were able to stay with her for two nights and we had such a wonderful time!
That's Patsy on the left, above - and me.
(We don't know the other guy.)
Lori took the picture.
Patsy and I worked together at the Stagecoach Inn restaurant in Columbia, California 35 years ago, and I also used to babysit her kids back then, as well.
She has a lovely place; it's all her own and she was able to decorate it precisely how she pleased, and I am SO happy for her!
I do wish she wasn't so far away, though......
Lori and I were thrilled to be there - Patsy is simply a delight to be around!
Patsy is a fabulous hostess and she took us around to see as much as we could in our limited time there.
We went home the first evening and watched "Sleepless In Seattle".
Of course, we have seen it before (and loved it!), but I hadn't seen it in quite a while, and it was so fun to watch it again - in Seattle!
She had made some fantastic homemade chili that we got to eat for dinner one evening, too.
Yum - wish I had some right now. I mean, it's June 11th and it is 63 degrees outside right now.
VERY unusual for this time of year - but I am loving it.
The picture below was taken while we were having a great lunch at Doc's Marina Grill on Bainbridge Island:
And I'm ready to come back - any time!
(But it will have to wait a while, unfortunately.)
I'd come tomorrow, if I could!
