Wrapping up our trip to Seattle

July 18, 2022

Finally, finally, here are the last images and videos of the trip that Mom and I took to Seattle in April. Three months later, and this is it. Monday April 18th I went for one final run, and this time it was chilly and rainy. This seagull didn’t mind. It was cool to see the […]

Easter Sunday, April 17th, 2022

July 17, 2022

I started the morning with a run. Well, first I took a bunch of pictures/videos because the mountains were out for the first time. And so beautiful… I started my run so very early for me, before 10 a.m. The marina was full of sailboats going out and some were already motoring back in. Early […]

National Nordic Museum

July 10, 2022

In my last post, I had many photos/videos of the many sailboats I saw while running alongside the marina in Seattle on Sat. April 16th. That afternoon, Mom, dearly departed Stan and I drove around to look at many sights he wanted to show us, and ended up at the fabulous National Nordic Museum. It […]

June 25, 2022

I just counted the number of videos I took on Saturday April 16th while jogging along the Shilshole Bay Marina waterfront in Seattle. Thirty! C’mon, Grace, what’s wrong with you? I can’t imagine that I managed to maintain a challenging heart rate because I must have stopped every few minutes to take a video. I […]

After realizing yesterday that my spring banner was out of date, I managed to create a new one. But that picture of the Seattle mountains was sure pretty.

Thursday!

June 23, 2022

Tuesday morning I woke up feeling so much myself again with boundless energy. I’d been so drained that I’d forgotten how good it feels to feel good. I went to the grocery store for the first time this month and scampered around outside in the garden area, scooping up many on-sale flowers. I hadn’t bought […]

After posting that last entry I looked at that lovely picture of the mountains on the banner and was dismayed to suddenly realize it still says SPRING. I know that summer just officially started yesterday but it feels like it’s already whooshing past. Hopefully I’ll have a new summer banner before the season has left…

Ballard Locks

June 22, 2022

On the afternoon of April 15th we drove to the BallardLocks, and once again, so many photos and videos…but I narrowed them right down. It was a cool place. It’s called the Ballard Locks because it’s in the Ballard section of Seattle, but the official title is the Hiram M. Chittenden Ballard Locks. It’s been […]

Second Day in Seattle

June 20, 2022

Finally, here are a few snippets from the trip to Seattle that Mom and I took waaaaay back in April, back when I still had a gallbladder… On April 15th we were out on our patio talking to our lovely air b&b host, Leah, and there were so many paddle-boarders out there in the bay. […]
