I Heart Seattle--Final Edition

Random...I tend to photograph that way.

What is Seattle most known for?  No, not the Mariners. Coffee!

Even Starbucks looks Bavarian in Leavenworth

Downtown Leavenworth is very dog-friendly. Cats can die.

Sometimes ugly junk is just so beautiful. I wanted to kidnap this pot from my SIL's house.

Their boyfriend crowed all day.

Next to coffee, Seattle-ites love their fish!

I love snooping in other people's yards ...

Is it a bench? A birdbath? A gnome home?

If only we'd brought a truck, Computer Geek's uncle would have had a lot of items missing from his backyard.

A three-wheeled car we saw in a parking lot.

Our July 4th bash--dinner, badminton, Nerf wars, and fireworks


View out SIL's back door. I expected the Volturi to come gliding through the trees at any moment.

I couldn't resist taking this shot driving east through Washington, even though the glare from my car window kept it from being perfect. Not too bad for whizzing by at 65 mph.

Our hotel in Lewiston, Idaho, which is right across the river from Clarkston, Washington. Get it?

Salmon River in Idaho

More Salmon River

And the photo that sums up our trip:


  1. Can cats read the sign on the water bowl for dogs?

  2. Auntie M: That's exactly what I was wondering. You don't see too many people walking their cats.

  3. Those landscape pictures are especially gorgeous! That green is so vibrant. I love the joy of that leap in the last picture.

    Thanks for sharing with all of us Randi. I'm so glad that you had a wonderful trip!

  4. Septembermom: There's such beautiful landscape up there that I become painfully aware that my camera can only touch a fraction of what my eye sees at any given point. But what did people ever do before cameras? I'm so grateful I live in an era where visually recording our memories is possible. Thanks for following along! :)

  5. incredible photo of the hay bales. Looks like a great place to visit!

  6. Jill: I love that photo too! The thing I dislike about traveling is that I can't stop the car every time I find something I want to take a picture of. I wonder if there's a way to Photoshop the window glare out of the picture. Hmmm...

  7. Wow, your pictures look professional. I particularly loved the one while driving 65mph. It was absolutely beautiful. I'm surprised you didn't see the Volturi while you were up there! That pic of Jere is also awesome! I'm glad you guys had fun :P

  8. Juliegoose: Wish you guys could have been there. But I guess if you can't be in Seattle, you might as well be in Seattle, Jr.--Dublin!


You won't be paid for it, but at least you'll know that you have contributed intelligence to the universe...
