I lived in Tacoma for 18 years and worked for two of those in Seattle. One of my favorite places in the world is Mt. Rainier National Park. I’m happy I got to see The Mountain on this trip. Last time I was in Seattle for nine days and saw only rain. Read the rest of this entry »

I know I’ve been remiss in my blog posts lately. New computer. Stuff to do. Places to go. I’m now in Seattle visiting my son, his wife, and my new (and first) granddaughter Sophie.

On the Road Again: Seattle

My son Ryan and me at Pike Place Market

This story picks up in the middle of my road trip.  I left Big Bend last Monday, and there isn’t much time for photo editing and blog posting when I’m on the road.  But I’m at my son’s house in Seattle now and it’s a rainy, indoorsy day so I can switch blog hosts as my son has recommended.
