Of course, this is all just an excuse to review more of my vacation photos and share!
In no particular order (and culled from our respective lists) here is our Top 10 from our Portland/Seattle trip:
no. 1 Columbia River Maritime Museum in Astoria, OR
no. 2 exploring tidal pools and seeing sea birds at Haystack Rock, Cannon Beach OR
and holding a tiny hermit crab
no.3 nature walks with friends
and building a fairy house
no. 4 the berries at the Portland Farmer's Market (to die for!)
no. 5 anytime we were near water (splash fountain and Elowah falls)
no. 6 anywhere Diana takes us out to eat (especially for ice cream!)
no. 7 seeing the many wolves at Wolf Haven
no. 8 Seattle Aquarium and seeing the octopus and the sea otters being fed
no. 9 exploring Seattle on a sunny day
no. 10 quiet beauty of Kubota gardens, a quick visit before heading to the airport
funny, no one remembered how we started things off ... with fine dining at the Rusty Tractor!
Thanks for the memories, Portland & Seattle, friends, fairies, and wild critters. We will be back!
