A Whale of a Tale!!

Installment #2 of our Seattle Trip -- once again I have tons of photos, so enjoy the Many I chose to share..
We went on a Whale watching adventure and it was absolutely amazing!  We drove to the Port city about an hour and a half from Seattle and then took the Ferry across to Friday Harbor -- in the San Juans..
birds that were nesting in the ferry boarding area

Getting off the ferry in Friday Harbor -- tons of people and 150 cars

Beautiful day in Friday Harbor

This was a sailboat we saw from our boat

Guess who is out there???  A humpback Whale!!  They usually see Orcas, so a Humpback was a special treat

I love it that the water looks like glass

Here's Mr. Humpback putting on a show for the passing ferry


look how close to the sailboat he was

love it!! 
It was a wonderful sailing day and I shot soooo many pics of the big guy!!  More in a few days about the rest of the Trip!!  Thanks for sailing with us!!

Seattle Story

Such a beautiful day
 This past weekend was a little getaway weekend for just my hubby and I!  We had not visited Seattle before, so it was an adventure to us!  It was a very fun trip with photos too numerous to post all at once, so come back in the next few days as I continue the story..
We did not ride the ferris wheel, but it certainly was pretty

We first visited Downtown and the famous Pike Place Market!  It was a feast for the eyes!  I badly wanted to  get some gorgeous flowers and bring them home, but since that is not easy on the plane, I just took tons of photos!
beautiful bouquets


The fish at the Market was amazing-- any kind you could want

  The Gum wall was also a highlight-- that is amazing and such a colorful and fun background!  look at all that gum!!


So cool!  I love Color- you know!!
