I'm Back with Just Photos

No cards yet, still trying to find the time to get back into my craft room amongst the 8 loads of washing and general catching up!

It was a wonderful 4 days in Seattle!  The air was crisp and clean with only one day where we had a few hours of actual rain, a bit of drizzle on another day and we ended our stay with two fabulous days, one with blue skies and one with gray but 50F!  I had some awesome runs with views of Mount Rainier and the Olympic Mountain range.  The people, wow, the people are so friendly and genuine and relaxed!

All I can say is that if any of you live out there, you are blessed! 

I am not an experienced photographer, I only use a point and shoot, so bear with me and my photos:

Just look at these colours!

The real RED Carpet!
A bush on fire!

I have never seen carrots like these!  They were at Pike Place Market.

I know....it's just a road, but it has hills!  Here in Houston hills do not exist, so seeing this just put me in the best of moods!  This was on Bainbridge Island.

A beautiful piece of drift wood I found along the coast on Bainbridge Island!

The most exquisite sight ever!  My precious Natasha!

I'm hoping to be back very soon with a card or two, in the meantime I want to pop by some of your blogs and say hi and see what you have been up to!

Hugs to all!

Welcome back! Such lovely photos and I'm so glad you had a great time! The pictures are so lovely! I do like that hilly road. Here we only see that if you live in the high mountains and canyons, so beautiful! And I think this is the first time I've seen a pic of your sweet daughter, love it!

I have been to seattle and it is a beautiful place. You should come visit me in the hill country if you want some hills. Natasha is such a cutie!

Thanks for sharing Brenda! That piece of wood is amazing. Did you get out of the car and jog on those hills? :0)

Lisa said...

Breathtaking, isn't it? I knew you would love it there :) Glad you got to see at least a part of the BETTER half of the U.S. (lol!! I'm sure others would argue, but I don't care)
Glad you are back my friend :)
