The Emerald City

We just spent a three-day weekend in Seattle visiting our son, who is a senior at the University of Washington, and every time I go there I am struck by how much I like the area.

Oh, I know what you’re thinking – Rain, Rain, Rain – and to be fair we haven’t gone in the winter, but all three other seasons are gorgeous! My favorite by far is fall, because it satisfies my longing for the autumns of my youth on the East Coast.IMG_2814 Although we generally get a bit of misty weather at some point while we’re there, it’s really welcome after our awful drought down here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

So here are a few of my favorite things about Seattle:

~ The University of Washington, which is an absolute stunner! After three plus years of visits I am never bored walking the 703-acre campus and I always discover something I haven’t seen before.
