Goodbye Emerald City

My husband and I had such a great time in Seattle – known as the Emerald City. There is so much to see and do that we barely touched the surface before it was time to move on to our next destination. One of our favorite things in the morning was walking down to Bacco Bacco BistroBistro. We’d have coffee and breakfast and watch all the people walking to and from Pike Place Market. The beautiful bouquets of flowers people were coming back with had us so intrigued, we just had to check it out. The prices are incredible because the growers are the Pike Place Flowerssellers – there is no middleman.

On our last night, we made a trip to the Space Needle. It is a must see for anyone visiting the Seattle area. I’m afraid of heights and I have to be honest, as the elevator started to make that climb, I almost asked the man operating it to stop. I had to close my eyes to make it to the top. I’m so glad I was able to overcome my fear. The view was breathtaking. We were able to catch the rest of sunset in the sky.

I knew it was after midnight on the East Coast, but I just had to share this view with my little sister. I sent her a text and told her if she was awake, to Facetime me for a view the most spectacular view. She called us right back. For a few minutes Rick and I were able to share our vacation and the view from the Space Needle with my little sister, Patty and her husband. It was like they were there with us. I wish they had been. We gave them a “tour” of what they were seeing from my iPhone. We used to be able to vacation together often but life gets busy and schedules change. Technology is a wonderful thing sometimes. Here are some of the photos from the Space Needle and of Seattle.

My husband and I were sad that we would be missing the Heaven series at our church back in NC while we were away. Our intention was to connect in remotely while we were on the road. This hasn’t worked out so well with the hectic pace we have kept on vacation; however, it feels as if each destination we have visited God has provided us with our own little slice of heaven. Our next stop is wine country in the Willamette Valley. Join me on Wednesday for some of the best wine in the region, beautiful lavender fields, some wonderful little restaurants, and a bed and breakfast with views, service, and a 5 star breakfast that you wont ever want to leave.

What is your favorite vacation memory? Have you ever done a video call to share it with loved ones? Leave me a comment below.
