When I got back and cleaned up we set out for today's adventure. We decided to take the ferry over to Seattle and walk about for a bit. Sarah and the boys had been down by the ferry terminal before to play among the rocks and fountains, but this was my first visit. The boys couldn't wait to show me around.
|Neat fountains at the park|
|The rocks were pretty cool too.|
|Yeah, I'm king of the park. No big deal.|
|This rock is HILARIOUS.|
It was a cloudy day or you would likely be subjected to many more pictures.
|The kids wanted to stay in because it was cold and windy. Sarah, of course, couldn't do it.|
|Eventually we got them out and looking around though|
|Ahh. Seattle. We missed you.|
From Seattle we flew to San Diego. Then we drove from there to OKC, back west to Santa Fe. Then we went to Richmond, VA before turning back to Houston. That is a lot of miles over the past 50 weeks. All so I could come back and take more pictures just a few feet away from where I took them last year.
This is the wall near the box office of a theater where people have been leaving chewed up bits of gum smooshed against the wall for years. Yes, this really is a thing.
And it's popular.
|Just follow the crowd to the chewed gum.|
|There was a tour group there. Really.|
|Michael:"We don't have to get any closer, right?" Max: "Seriously, WTF?"|
|We had to get outside.|
|And maybe some plants and water too, yeah, that helps.|
Then we were done with the crowds and traffic. It is nice to visit Seattle and I wouldn't mind living near Seattle, but I don't think I am the big city type anymore. We got on the ferry and headed back. On the way back I couldn't help but daydream.
