Oroville to Seattle

It was pretty sad to leave Oroville, where we had such a nice time in our little beach front cottage.

We went up to Cam’s parents cottage for a post-wedding brunch, and then had to head back to Seattle as Kate and Janetta were both flying home tonight.  I couldn’t get a flight til tomorrow, so I dropped my luggage off at the airport, packed a small bag with everything I’d need for a night, and headed into the city..

I only had one night, so I figured I’d hit the basics: Chihuly Garden and Glass and the Space Needle tonight, and Pike Place Market in the morning.

I could have spent a full day with Chihuly’s creations.  I have such an appreciation for glasswork, having taking some beginner’s classes, so this became my favourite museum ever.

The Space Needle was okay too.

The next morning I woke up bright and early to check out the Pike Place Market before my flight.  I think I got there a bit too early, but I’m sure I’ll be back someday.

And suddenly my time was up. It flew by, but I’d say my first venture to the west coast was a success.
