The Bluest Skies

There was an old song that went,
"The bluest skies you've ever seen are in Seattle."

The same goes for Tacoma, and Federal Way,
and Edmonds, and Everett.

North of Tacoma

It's about an hour's drive from Tacoma,
but there's a fun Children's Museum in Everett.

It's on Wall Street, west of Colby Avenue.
Right across from the Monte Cristo building.

High Pressure/Gorgeous Sunsets

There's been a high pressure system
off the Washington coast,
bringing milder temperatures
and blue skies.

Makes Olympic ski runs
a little softer than usual,
but gives us great sunsets.

Lunch at the Museum

The food is marvelous
at the café at the Museum of Glass.
It's prepared by my favorite catering outfit,

I had a Greek salad that was extraordinary.
And notice the tablecloths and flowers on all the tables.

Hot shop.

A trifecta.

Raindrops and Cattails

It's wet today.

I tried to get a photo of the ducks
that recently arrived at the pond,
but they were having none of that.

So have raindrops
and cattails instead.

Spanish Steps

The Spanish Steps
outside the decaying Elks Lodge Building
are in sad shape, too.

Time for a face lift.
