Today is our last day in Seattle. We woke up to a text message from my Mom, asking if we were OK. Confused by this, I checked email. There was a note from a friend making sure we were safe, since there was a possible tsunami approaching the west coast. Stunned, we turned the news on the see the devastation in Japan, and listened to local reports. As many of you already are, I urge you to keep the people of Japan in your thoughts and prayers. The videos and photos are unreal, and it's astonishing what a force Mother Nature can be. After hearing that we would be safe here in Seattle, we ventured out. We were able to see all of Seattle from the top of the Space Needle -- Puget Sound, Mt. Rainier, the city, and the lake that Tom Hanks' house boat was on in the movie Sleepless in Seattle. Later this afternoon, we'll be boarding a Portland-bound train to meet up with my brother. We're looking forward to skiing at Mt. Hood tomorrow, and exploring another city!
I'm sorry I haven't been able to share any photos of the trip -- my mobile blogging app is acting funny and not allowing me to upload any to my posts! I'll post a few highlights upon our return.
