|Seattle in October
Hummed to the tune of "Singin' in the Rain"Cherie and I flew to Seattle to spend the long Columbus Day holiday weekend with Matt, who had a four-day pass from nearby Fort Lewis.
Seattle was terrificPike Place Market, coffee shops, the Space Needle, coffee shops, Pioneer Square, coffee shops, the Underground Tour, coffee shops, harbor-side restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, coffee shops, pubs, and coffee shops.
But best of all was spending time talking with Matt over dinners and drinks, walking the streets with him, oogling museum exhibits togetherjust being with him.
|Matt's Beer-ly Drinking Age|
|Now that Matt's 21, he's of legal drinking age. By all accounts, he's taken full advantage of that fact with his buddies in the 3rd of the 2nd Stryker Brigade. So...he dragged us north of Seattle to Woodinville, home of several wineries and of Red Hook Brewery, where we went on a tour of the beer-making facility.
Here's a quick quiz based on the signs in the picture below. It shows Matt with his new found tour buddies from Minnesota (maybe they're emigrees from the Swedish Ski Team) and the barkeep, a fella adept at repeating the Red Hook motto: "Ya, sure, you betcha!"
OK, the questions:
|To Market, To Market...|
|This photo reminds me of the moody early Beatle shots of Stu Sutcliff taken on dreary Hamburg streets. But it's Matt protectively shepherding his mother through the rain-washed streets of Seattle outside Pike Place Market.|
