Part 4: Planes and Magic.

I am a fan of Harry Potter. Now, I wouldn’t say I am the biggest fan. I don’t play

Quidditch—yes, people do play a game that is supposed to mimic Quidditch—and I don’t know every small fact about every character. I will say, however, I do own the books and the wands. I never really needed to own the movies because of ABC specials, but that is besides the point. Now, you might be wondering why I am talking about Harry Potter so much. Well that is because of University of Washington. Their library actually looks very similar to the eating hall in the movies. Furthermore, with all the books, I did feel a sense of magic and wonder in the air. Makes me wish I attended there for undergrad.

After the magic, I visited the Museum of Flight. It was not the biggest museum, but it was fun and neat. Don’t know really what to say about it other than that. Here is a picture I took, however.20181220_140853.jpg

This concludes my blogging about my Seattle Adventures. It was a fun trip and I saw lots of wonderful things. There was one huge negative, however. The rain! But what can you do? Anyway, thanks for reading.

Signing off,

December Adventures Seattle Part 3

In one of my adventures this month, I was exploring the city of Seattle, Washington. Here is Part 3 out of 4.

Part 3: Tower and Art

When you visit Seattle, how can you not see the Seattle Tower? As you have probably guessed, that is what I did. To be completely honest, once you see one tall tower, you’ve seen them all. I know that sounds very cynical and I can have some appreciation to architectural designs. However, it’s just one of those things when you visit a place and that is it. I went to the tower and I saw it. I guess some of my “downy downerson” side could also be from just looking at the tower and not actually going into it. I did not go to the top simply for one main reason, there were a fair amount of people there. Anyway, I did not take a picture of it and simply moved on to the place I was most excited for.

The Glass Garden is a small building containing the artistic works of Dale Chihuly. You can read more about him on the Glass Garden website. I am going to be honest, the tickets are the not cheapest as tickets go. However, I think it was worth it. I especially loved the outdoor ones where there is this combination of glass art and nature. It was as if I was transported to a new foreign land, kind of like the movie, Avatar (not the horrible film version of the Last Airbender).

We were allowed to take pictures, but I feel as if I should not post them. For one of the joys is going without a good idea of what you may see.

For the night, I went to a “Crab Pot”. Basically, where they put food on the table, and you eat it. To be honest, it was not the best crab I have had, but it was a fun experience.

December Adventures Seattle Part 2

In one of my adventures this month, I was exploring the city of Seattle, Washington. Here is Part 2 out of 4.

Part 1: First Starbucks

This part is rather short. It was a busy day, but there was one memorable spot I went to, the First Starbucks… sort of.

I love coffee, like most of my colleagues. It is the substances that helps with all those late night and early morning study sessions. So, how could I give up the chance to go to to the first Starbucks?.

Like any other location, it had the same drinks you could get anywhere else. However, they also had a couple special drinks just for that location. It was a particular brew, I guess. Either way it tasted good which is all that matters right?

Well one more thing, I guess I visited the wrong location. The location I went is not apparently the first one? I went to the address on the official site, but as I walked around the market there was another smaller one with a long line of people and a window proclaiming to be the first one. So shrug*
