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!
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
