In Seattle

We had an uneventful trip to Seattle. Once in the heart of downtown, during rush hour we nearly were broadsided by someone who failed to stop at a stop sign. We are thankful God protected us.

The trip over started out sunny and cool, turned sunny and warm in Yakima and then as we approached the mountains it turned cold, rainy. We also drove in dense fog coming down the West side of the mountain. On the East side we had strong head winds.

We stopped and took pictures of two historic court houses, one in Pomeroy and one in Dayton. We also took a picture of an old train depot and caboose in Dayton. We visited my parents for a few minutes and used their bathrooms. On the way out of town from their house we drove by and saw the camel they have for a new neighbor.

We took pictures at the Tea Pot Dome on our way by Zillah. It looks rather weather worn and run down.

We ate in our motel room. I fixed baked potatoes with sour cream, cheese and bacon on them, apples and cinnamon and sugar simmered in a sauce pan and cheetos.

I need to go back to my room and see what I have planned for tomorrow's meals...I may need to get something started tonight if it is dehydrated. I brought a small crock pot for that purpose.

Now we are at the Motel here just a stone's throw away from the Space Needle. It looks awesome after dark with the lights on it.
