Seattle Sights

First up was a walk to Pike Market.
We watched the fish throwing, toured almost all the stalls, and shopped.
We watched some cheese making and had a little taste.
We walked down to the waterfront.
Toured the Space Needle.
Went to the Museum to see the Star Trek exhibit.
Toured the glass garden.
Went on an underground tour and saw these cool sky lights in the sidewalk.
Rode up into the tallest building to see the skyline.
And went to see the terra cotta warrior exhibit.

Long Time No See

It has been a little bit since I have posted and I have to say it was both busy and I sort of lost my motivation for a bit.  I think I'm back on track now so how about some catch up?

In May, I went to Seattle with Yaling so try out my time share.  It was fabulous and we brought our San Diego weather with us so it was a bit warmer than usual.

We stayed at the Camlin right on the edge of downtown.  Highrise hotel with a small kitchenette.  One bedroom with a murphy bed.
It was originally an apartment style rental and each room had a kitchen which was boarded over when it became a hotel.  When the Wydham took it over to convert to a time share, they found kitchens with trash still here.  In the basement, there is a display of the old kitchens.
There was an icebox instead of a refrigerator.  Very cool place and the staff was great.  They also provided listings of discounted restaurants and we also got passes to various sites.

San Diego Poke Co

I had to make a trip to the dentist and finished around lunch time.  I did a google search for close lunch places and found this one.
It is in a little strip mall with limited parking.  I ordered a medium bowl.
Avocado was an extra charge but not the krab salad.  Cucumbers were not marinated.  Price-wise, there are other places with better deals.

Colorado Visit

I went out to visit Val in Colorado for a short trip.  It was much cooler there and it actually snowed while I was there and on the way home.
The plane had to be de-iced before take off.

When Val picked me up we went to Bonefish Grill for lunch where Bob met up with us.  The lunch specials were good.
Potstickers to start.
Bang bang shrimp tacos with clam chowder to warm me up.
Timmy missed me a lot and Aidan warmed up after a while.
I slept downstairs this time and Timmy was able to jump up and open the bedroom door so I had to end up locking it.

I worked on my quilt and finally pieced the center together with Sandy's help.
Val is working on the extension pieces at it needs curves.  Aidan decided to add his help.
Susie finished a quilt for her friend which used up her old baby clothes.  It was so awesome.
