So long Seattle

 I thought I would 
share just a few more views
of Seattle
from the water.

 On our last night, 
we had the pleasure of 
a boat cruise 
up
Lake Washington.

 The city seemed to sparkle.

 And we were honored with a beautiful sunset ...

 and then a glorious full moon!

It was a spectacular evening.

By now, though, Seattle seems like a distant memory 
even though we just left this past Friday 
and headed to Alaska
for a three day visit. 

Only 1,916 Alaska photos to review.
Oy vey!

Stay tuned!
 
: : :

Looking forward to catching up
with all of you and seeing
what you have been up to!

Oh my! The photos just get better and better. What software did you use on the first picture? I love that effect.

You do know you're a girl after my own heart, don't you, with all the traveling?

Seattle has a very wealthy retirement community. A lot of senior Americans that live there make over 200,000 a year. That's according to an article I read just yesterday.

In the craziness of my own life, I've lost track of YOU!! I'm glad I have found you in one of my favorites places, Seattle! Your photos bring back a lot of good memories for me from my 10 years of living in Alaska--I'll look forward to your photos from there too!!

Vagabonde said...

Your photos are stunning! I can’t believe how many photos you took of Alaska – well, I can believe it because we went to Alaska too and I took many pictures – but not that many! I wrote only two or three posts on Alaska and still have many photos to use. I know yours will be super special.

Mark said...
