Like a Whirlwind…

they come and then they are gone…

 

Our company flew home last night. My brother Steve, my SIL Kelly and nephew Joe were with us from California for a couple weeks. We hit some hot spots in Seattle. This is at Kerry Park looking south to Seattle.

 

The Original Starbucks at the market.

 

You’ll find street musicians around the market every day. This group was really exceptional!

 

Waiting inside for their drinks.

We headed back down the street to see about catching some flying fish.

 

A shot with the golden pig right across from the flying fish!

 

Down the stairs to the disgustingly interesting and famous gum wall below the market.

That didn’t spoil our appetites and we headed to Piroshky, Piroshky for a favorite Russian treat.

 

And then a little confession is always a good way to begin and end the day!

We had a lot more adventures with our company that I’ll show in the coming days. We still have my sister Kathy’s family here. They are staying at my sister Lana’s house a short walk from me. They are here till Tuesday so the fun continues…

Photobucket replaced all my photos with ugly black and grey boxes and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. Wow, you’ve had so much company! And I know you love it! I’m home for a few days and then I’m off to BE company again. This time I’m heading south.

  2. Oh Ellen…at some point I’m going to have to painstakingly go back through your blog to find and make a list of “places we need to see”. I have a dream that our family will make it there yet. Our girls would love it. I was there in the 70’s….not sure that the gum wall was a happening place back then…it is disgusting yet so colorful. Hope your week is restful!

  3. Lucky guests to have such energetic hosts! It sounds a though you had a grand time with your family – we’ve got overseas family coming again soon, so we’ll be getting the guide books out!
