I Love Seattle -- Part 2 of 3

Additional highlights of my Seattle trip were of course a visit to the Space Needle:

The weather was quite pleasant when we were at the top and we were afforded a nice view of the city:

We made time for tea and crumpets one afternoon .... very delicious!  I now need to find a good recipe for crumpets:

I have some very kind cousins living in Seattle that gave up an entire afternoon/evening to show us the sights that we wouldn't have otherwise been able to see on foot.  They took us to the Ballard Locks where we were able to watch some kayakers making their way through the locks:

Besides taking us to a wonderful little quilt shop and treating us to a delicious dinner, they also took us to a park where we had a different view of the Space Needle, as well as a nice sight of watching the ferries returning from one of many trips across the sound:

Hope I someday have opportunity to see these sights for myself. In the meantime, I'm enjoying your blog as a travel brochure!

Great photos! Makes me miss Seattle. I think I am past-due for a visit. Looking forward to Post 3! :-)

Monica- I just caught up on your blog and loved the photos of Seattle. I think I know the park where you saw the ferries and Space Needle, as I lived right on top of Queen Anne Hill growing up. It was so fun to be reminded of all the nice things about visiting Seattle. Thanks, Jennie
