Waves Seattle Good-bye

I got back from Seattle last week and have been running ever since to catch up before heading to Atlanta next week. I had a fabulous time and saw so much thanks to a dear lady that my boss' wife knows who lives in the area. I stayed with her saving myself the cost of a hotel and got the tour of a lifetime. I had basically one day before my conference started. Norma asked me what I wanted to see and then said "okay, now I know where we are going to go." and we were off.

Off to Chinatown and the Uwajimaya (Asian Supermarket) for browsing and lunch

I'm going to stop there because the rest of the day was even better and I don't want to take up anymore space in this post. Thank you for reading.

Yes, it was except for one thing. You weren't there. *pouts* Maybe next time?

That Troll under that bridge would freak me out in winter when it is dark and then WHACK you stare into that face.
YIKES.

Nevertheless, it's beautiful and what an awesome idea to use that lost space.

Yes, I hadn't considered that. It's like a park but it's under a bridge so very little light. Not the place for flowers but definitely the place for a fierce troll to hand out.

I used to visit the dam and fish ladder when we were on holiday in Scotland many years ago. This is a familiar sight! Gorgeous flowers. I don't know what the top one is called in English, but I have a beads version hanging in my living room. *g*

People seem to call it a lantern plant or a pink and purple lantern. I saw it growing near the canal locks and thought it was pretty.

Thanks. :) It's what they are called here too. Didn't know they were called the same.

Love the photographs!

The Sand sculptures are amazing!

That would make a pretty incredible sand sculpture but he is solid concrete. I didn't climb on him though I'd read since then that you are allowed and even encouraged.
