Visit to Seattle

Here are some photos from our day out in Seattle. It was sunny on the way up there and soon as we got out of the car the wind was blowing and it starting raining after we were at this Gasworks park. This is the view of Seattle facing South from Lake Union not from the ocean. We went up to the triathalon store that was nearby and we were having fun at the park until chase fell in the grass and got mud all over him! We tried to wash what we could off in the bathroom but there are a lot of homeless people hanging around and sleeping in the park and I felt a little uneasy as they were pandhandling. I notice that Seattle does have a lot of homeless people, and it's sad. I don't give them money anymore since once or twice I did and I saw them go to the store and buy some booze. Once in a while I will give them some food though as I feel for their plight.

Anyways, we had a good day and then we went to the Pacific Science Center (by the space needle) which has lots or stuff for kids to do. They have a dinosaur exhibit and butterfly house and lots of science type experiments and toys. They have the Dead Sea scrolls exhibit but that was extra so we didn't go as I know he would be bored. I would love to go to that and to the 'Bodies' exhibit downtown after just taking that Anatomy course. Well, we'll see if we get there or not. Sometimes I love Seattle and sometimes I hate it. My hubby wants to live there someday, like in dowtown Seattle but at heart I'm still a small town girl or at least the suburbs! Hope everyone has a great weekend!

It sounds like a great trip! My dad and sister are going to the Bodies exhibit in Las Vegas tomorrow. It is supposed to be super cool, but I'm a little too easily grossed out for it.

I'm the same way about homeless people... if I'm going to give them something, it's a blanket or some food or something... not money because you never know what their habit is that they might spend it on. A lot of homeless people are clean of that stuff, but they can still use other things besides money, and you just never know.

Glad you had a nice trip! I wouldn't want to live in the city. I am a suburban girl all the way. If anything I would move further into the country, but not too rural, still have to be close to things.
