Now that I’ve talked about why I wanted to take a train across the United States (part 1) and a little bit about how that turned out, (part 2) now it’s time to dive in to some sight-seeing!
After almost three days on the train, Sammi and I couldn’t wait to get to the hotel and take a shower; washing away that train. But, we had to sit in the Seattle station for a little bit because our friend Zuri was coming in from Montana to pick us up. I had someone near to my heart who was coming as well, but I wasn’t really wanting that person to pick our train dirt selves up from the train station. Living in WA, they had the shortest drive.
Our train landed Friday morning and we were in Seattle until we flew out to California Monday morning.
Downtown Seattle we went and did the tourist thing. Marketplace. Oh, yes.
Bubble gum wall? Oh, yea, that too.
I saw so much in such a short period of time and because I was enjoying the company of my friends, I really did not get a lot of photos of the places I went.
We found a Ben and Jerry’s.
I ate the BEST Mac and Cheese at Beecher’s Handmade Cheese (We actually traveled to Bellevue on Sunday for this.)
I watched Only the Brave with the fireman Mr. Viking Drool Beard Oil.
We had a beautiful day with no rain.
And I had the best time with my girls.
But all good things must come to an end.
Sammi and I had to head to the airport to fly to California to meet up with another friend.
We found fish and chips at the airport.
Zuri was supposed to travel with us, but ended up not being able to come. Her empty seat was a sad reminder.
Bye-bye Seattle. It was fun.
