As if we had not all had enough sensory overload with the views, the music, the train and the meals, we arrived in Seattle only to experience Chihuly Gardens on Wednesday.
However, before I got to those photos, I just had to share some more of the magnificent unpopulated areas that we saw on our way up the coast.
As we turned inland, we entered farmland. Crops of every description as we traveled through the garlic capital of the world, the artichoke capital of the world and who knows what else!
A TOTAL unexpected wonder was that the trees were still turning. We were treated to trees in a rainbow of colors. The colors in Seattle were stunning. Who knew? I certainly was entranced to
experience this natural wonder.
I never knew what river we were crossing. Heck, I hardly knew what small town we were going through unless, perhaps they had a sign and a train terminal. It didn't really matter. It was ALL
Tuesday night we arrived in Seattle. Eating dinner and resting up for the next day's adventures was the order of the night.
Pike's Market, Chihuly Gardens (www.chihulygardenandglass.com) was at the top of my list.
I was NOT disappointed. I'll let the photos speak for themselves.
Even though the fog was as thick as pea soup, it didn't deter from the mastery of glass.
As if all of this wasn't enough, we had a concert Wednesday night at the Tractor Tavern!
A perfect day and night.
