During our heat wave we decided to Ride the Ducks in Seattle with our Dallas family.
Our driver was entertaining.
The ride takes you by some highlights of Seattle like the Seattle Wheel and the Hammering Man at the Seattle Art Museum.
For me the best part of the tour was rolling onto South Lake Union and motoring in the water.
The floating house from Sleepless in Seattle was pointed out to us.
I was more interested in the building right behind this boat garage. It’s where our daughter Katie was married a few years ago.
The heat and the stop and go movement of the duck bus got the best of dear little Andrew.
After having lunch we walked through the Seattle Center to get back to our parking garage.
It was great to have our Dallas crew here for the wedding and afterwards. So nice to spend time with Hope and Andrew and get to know little Andrew better.
I’m going to just do tours with my company on my own in the future instead of spending money on the Ducks! I can’t take them out on the water but I can get them to the hot spots in town in more comfort.

And then outside of Seattle to the very northwestern edge of the contiguous United States, Dear and I had a little getaway to the Olympic Peninsula.
At the Cape Flattery Trail head.
Later this week or early next week I’ll share the beautiful views of Cape Flattery and the lighthouse.
While on the Olympic Peninsula we also stopped at some beautiful lavender farms in Sequim, Washington. This Grosso lavender is a full fluffy variety. I’ll be sharing a post of the lavender farms we visited later, too.
Not a real clear photo through our windshield but this bumper sticker made me smile on our way back to the ferry that would bring us home from our adventure. Homer Alaska A Quaint little drinking village with a fishing problem.!
I’m adding this post to signs, signs by Lesley! Thanks Lesley!
Last Friday I had a few hours by myself downtown with my camera. The weather was sunny with a few puffy clouds but cold.
The walk from the Pyramid Alehouse Restaurant across from Safeco Field to Harbor Steps across from the Art Museum was 2 miles round trip. I got a good dose of vitamin D. Later in the evening at the Sounders Soccer game at Qwest field the weather turned to rain. I’ll show the rest of my photos from my downtown Seattle walk during this coming week.
Hope your Sunday is going well. We are enjoying the aroma of Baby Back ribs that have been smoked for several hours and are now in the oven continuing to cook smothered in barbecue sauce. I’M HUNGRY. We’ll eat when Josh and Laura stop by shortly.
I’m linking to Mosaic Monday hosted by Mary at Little Red House.
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.
