Recent Trip To The Pacific Northwest

DSC_0083

The wife and I recently took a business/pleasure trip to the Pacific Northwest. The business part consisted of the wife competing for a spot on Sew It All TV at an expo near Tacoma, Washington. After that was over, we drove to Gig Harbor on Puget Sound to have dinner and drinks. The next day, we headed down to Portland, Oregon, where we took in the downtown sights and toured the Lan Su Chinese Garden. We spent the next couple of days exploring Seattle before flying back home to a very welcome three-day weekend.

I embedded a timeline of tweets and a picture gallery below. This was our first chance to really play around with the new camera, so the pictures aren’t great. We got lucky with a couple of days of warm, sunny weather, including the day we had a hotel balcony near the food truck lot in Portland. The remaining days, we experienced the typical overcast sky and misty rain that is so characteristic of the region.

I think we all know who built the adorable mini picnic table.

These next couple of pictures were taken at the Experience Music Project, a museum in Seattle that’s dedicated to the history and exploration of popular music, science fiction, and pop culture.

This was a participatory exhibit in the science fiction wing of the museum:

All in all, it was a great trip. I fly all over the country for work, but I never seem to see much more than the airport and the hotel/conference center. We managed to turn this brief business trip into a well-deserved vacation.
