Sunny in Seattle


How many days in January (any January) do you suppose you’d get a view like that in Seattle? Well, we lucked out. Jeffrey and I tossed our bags in the car on Saturday morning, and headed off to the Emerald City. Some friends had invited us for the weekend, and I wavered, up until I actually put the pedal to the metal. But, we went, we saw, we had a ball. And, miracle of miracles, it was sunny the entire weekend!

Jeffrey kept asking when we could go up the Eiffel Tower- Even after riding the glass elevator to the top of the Space Needle, he kept talking about how cool the Eiffel Tower was- how tall, how awesome, how fantastic. I mean, what’s better to a boy than a glass elevator and a free Swarovski telescope with a view of Mt.Rainier, Mt. St. Helens, Mt Hood, Lake Union, Puget Sound and the entire Olympic peninsula- it was THAT clear.

I can’t tell you about my Secret Mission. Sworn to secrecy. Sorry.

I did meet with a web-designer that may be helping me with some tricks up my sleeve. We’ll see. Mwa-hahahaha….

  1. I bet the view from the Eiffel Tower isn’t nearly that good. Okay, I don’t bet any such thing. I’ve never been to the Eiffel Tower. I also think I haven’t been to the Space Needle. Now I feel lame.

  2. Well, it does look amazing.

    I go up in towers like those, and then cling to the center as my fear of heights takes over. World Trade Center (pre 9/11, of course) Empire State, Sears Tower, Washington Monument, and yes, the Eiffel. I haven’t done the Space Needle, but I’m guessing it would be the same. I keep going up, telling myself I’ll be fine, and then the whole tower starts to sway and I hang out by the gift shop while everyone else takes in the view. I am such a wuss. As soon as they make a pill for fear of heights, I’m taking it!

  3. Glad you got away. And I think your guy was just trying to take you to Paris but you kept insisting it was Seattle. Use your imagination will ya?
