A little late but here are some food porn pictures from Thanksgiving. My sister and brother-in-law out did themselves, with help from their mom’s. Everything was delicious and put me into a food coma.

It’s been so cloudy and rainy. How about a picture of sunny Paris? Sounds good to me, although when this was taken it was freezing!

Well, the windfall of Seattle pics is finally over. Here are bits and pieces from wandering around.

Well, this isn’t out and about. It’s actually the smoke alarm in my hotel room.

You can hop a ferry that takes you to islands off the coast of Washington or just to the other side of the sound. Bainbridge is among these places. We had originally intended to catch the ferry and then come back in quick succession to see the sun set and the lights come up in downtown Seattle. Alas, we were too early.  The sun was still up yet everything was closed on the island.  We decided to leave but had to run to catch the ferry for the trip back.  No lights were to be seen.  But Bainbridge, what little I saw, was idyllic.

I went on an art and architecture tour while hosting visitors in Seattle.  I recommend it to anyone.  A really great experience.

There is A LOT of Chihuly on exhibit. A LOT.  I suppose because one of his studios is located in WA.

The city of Seattle requires 1% of the budget of any new public building be spent on art. It’s a wonderful program that leads to all kinds of different mediums and venues.

The Seattle Public Library: this building was received much like Pei’s pyramid at the Louvre. I think it’s growing on people though.

The floor on the first floor is a commissioned art piece. It’s embossed and just incredible.
