Four Nights, Five Days

Right, we were in Seattle for a long time. I no longer feel like Seattle is a mystery land halfway to Kansas, and don't have quite the same fear of Driving in the Big City. If you make wrong turns, you just drive in circles until you get headed in the right direction, and meanwhile may see stuff. Like some sweet little park somewhere that we deadended at (Kobe Terrace Park, apparently), and Suzanne Tidwell's yarn-bombing in Pioneer Square. Trees with sweaters, oh my...

January 8, Seattle. Trees with sweaters. (Click for larger image.)

Once we were settled, GF picked us up and took us here and there, including a sweep along wherever (the ship canal?) to Chittenden Locks.

The next three days were all about medical business. The only workout the camera got was those entrancing sunrises from our room. Thursday morning we saw my Big City Doctor at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, then drove off down the hill and onto the ferry and home.

According to the GPS data which the camera creates, we were exactly here,

when I took this image of leaving the Emerald City.

PS. Continuing to mostly put the images up as is, using auto settings on the camera and mostly no after-processing. Will inch further along the learning curve later on.

Glad to hear you're doing well, considering everything. The photos look quite clear - most of them anyway. Don't pressure yourself Miriam. You are worth more than a pressured result.
