Per the request of Lina!: A friend and I decided to make our annual February trip to another location we had never been to: Seattle! Following is a photo essay of our trip:
The Gum Wall
We found an Argentinian Restaurant! – So good!
They had tango dancers dance around the restaurant and even on the bar!
This is from a coffee shop – had to try Seattle coffee!
The Space Needle looks like a spaceship from the bottom
Off to Vancouver!
Just when we finally got to the border patrol agent – he asked us to pull to the side and park and go into this building where we were questioned for almost an hour!! I guess because we were going for such a short time (about 24 hours), they thought we were smuggling drugs! I have to say, they were really polite at least! We had an eventful border crossing back into the states too – someone in the lane next to us was pulled out of their car at gunpoint and arrested!!
leaving the detention area! We’re free!!
Vancouver, I found is a very beautiful and clean city
The following day, we went to Lynn Canyon Park
me on the suspension bridge
Totally reminded me of the movie, homeward bound!
I had to Google this! “Jaquie” was killed by a rock that dislodged and fell on her while sunbathing by the river. This prompted her brother to join the Search and Rescue team.
A mini waterfall – I would love to come back here and hike for the entire day!
Overall, I really enjoyed Seattle and Vancouver. Both are cities with friendly people and great food. I wouldn’t mind coming back to either city to explore a little more as I “only” had a long weekend to do so!
Home sweet home! ❤ SF
Awesome photos. Nicely done. I had the opportunity to visit those two great cities back in 1993 (20 years ago next month!) Vancouver is still the most beautiful city I’ve ever seen. Back then, border patrol was a lot less restrictive than it appears to be today. My brother and I were only going across for a day, and it took us all of four or five minutes to go through security.
Glad you got to have a nice time,
Wow! When we went, they were “strictly business.” and asked us about 148864 questions!
Love. So where are WE traveling to??
everywhere!! but seriously, let’s plan something!
That first picture of the gorgeous veggies at Pike’s Market had me thinking of munching… till I got to the gum wall photo. Appetite gone. Perhaps I should tape a gum wall shot to my fridge as a weight control measure… Looks like such a fun weekend- you did a lot for a long weekend!
hahaha! that could possibly work! We had so much fun!
I’ve heard great things about both cities – I’d love to visit them one day and your photos just add to that feeling!
good to hear! I’d love to go back to both! cheers!
