For my last tourist guide event with my lovingly labeled left over from the wedding company we went to my favorite library in all of the state of Washington and beyond! The Suzzallo library on the campus of the University of Washington is a treasure!
As we stepped out of the parking garage I said to Steve and Kelly, “welcome to Oxford”. We stepped inside and I was on a quest to get them up to the reading room and to see their reaction.
Kelly is a fan of Harry Potter as are several others of us! On our way up the stairs I saw the sign about the Harry Potter Exhibit.
Photos capture some of the beauty of this room but nothing makes up for seeing it yourself. My brother was ready to go back to school at the University of Washington just to be able to study in this inspiring space. Rooms like these with the architecture that takes your eyes upward point to the glory of God.
The last of my Seattle tourism photos were taken on the campus of the University of Washington.
My brother Steve, and Kelly my sister in law.
This post is the last of my extended family posts from the beginning of July. Next week I’ll show you some beautiful sights that Dear and I saw on the Olympic Peninsula.
We continue to have more bearable temperatures here in our little corner of the world. I still have to water regularly. Today I was brave enough to turn on the oven and I used the first of our apples from our tree to make an apple crisp. I used this recipe. What’s new in your corner of the world?
This magnificent room in the Bodlein in Oxford was used as the Hogwarts Infirmary in the Harry Potter Movies. The detail of the carved ceiling is amazing don’t you think?
Our timing wasn’t the best to be able to get the guided tour of the library room while we were in Oxford. You have to sign up for their timed tours and we were a bit late out of the gate to do that. Next time…
This post will wrap up our day six in Oxford and I’ll be moving along to day seven in Broadway soon.
And now for some local news…
We finally have some sunshine again and the rain has paused for a few days.
Thankful for that as Andrew and Katie will begin their move into a spanking new apartment on Monday. How nice to not have to deal with pet hair this time around. I’ll share some photos next week. They will pick up their pod and empty that and then get the rest of their belongings that are at this old house. They used a U-Haul pod which was more economical for them than other pod companies. The savings probably comes from the fact that you pick up and deliver the pod yourself from the local U-Haul Carrier. Then they ship it across country for you. When it arrives close to your zipcode you have to pick it up and return it. Their pod is being delivered to a very inconvenient place in the Seattle area. We are northeast of Seattle and the pod is being delivered south of Seattle with the route to get there going right through downtown Seattle. Traffic timing will be a huge necessity.
Today there’s a little gathering of friends of theirs at this old house. The Pork Butt is in the smoker and has been since 3am.
What does your Saturday hold?
