We landed in Seattle and spent a couple days with Jeanie & Gordon, and then we spent a couple of days with Tedd & Kathy. What a fun way to end a fantastic trip!
Jeanie & Gordon took us to the Museum of History and Industry. What a great museum. It documented a lot of the history of Seattle from the time of the Yukon Gold Rush (1898), to World Wars1 & 2 (1917-1945) and Microsoft (1981- now). Recently, Amazon is taking over much of downtown Seattle. The streets are full of what seems to be 20,000 20-somethings at lunch time. It's all very exciting!
Tedd and Kathy arranged for a visit with Deena. What a fun morning. We haven't seen Deena in a long time it was good to catch up with her. Deena and Nancy always bring the best out in each other and it's fun for the rest of us to watch!
Later that afternoon Tedd & Kathy took us to the Norwegian Sailors Guild in Poulsbo for dinner and conversation with 200 people we've never met before! Sailors are always fun!! Hugh fit right in with some retired submariners having a discussion of Snowden and what should be done with classified information.
It was sad when they had to drop us at the airport. That meant our vacation was coming quickly to an end. Bummer! The trip home was uneventful - Con and Joann met us at the airport in San Jose, and we were very happy to see our kitty when we got home.Read more
