Tuesday 26 March, 6pm
So, this morning I took the Bainbridge ferry (and I’m not getting tired of saying that name) back to Seattle and the D RapidRide to Ballard where I got to wash my clothes and had another little nap. I really needed some rest after all the excitement of the last days and I still feel like I need to recharge my batteries a bit more. Man, I miss the ‘Bainbridge lot’ already! What a few days with a great crowd can do your emotional being!
Around midday I decided to take the bus back into town and nearly lost my Orca card (that’s the same concept as London’s Oyster card – only there’s barely any public transport you can use it on). Well, I did lose it but I found it again when I retraced my steps. Phew! Lucky idiot that I am!
Today turned out to be the day of tourist merchandise hunting. My bounty was a Seattle hoodie (purple, yay!), two girlie shirts and a really cool mug from Starbucks (yeah, I know, but it had to be done) – all on the cheap! Then I spent far too long sipping a hazelnut frappucino in Starbucks, trying to upload my photos to Facebook. Turns out that’s a real bastard from the iPad, so for now there’s only lots of random photos I took with my iPhone. Sorting that out will be a mammoth task when I get back but, hey ho, it also gotta be done.
The weather is still fantastic. I didn’t even need a jacket for most of the day. Tomorrow I’ll be off to Olympia to meet Ben, who’s gonna whisk me off to Montesano and Aberdeen for some Nirvana fan photos 😉 haha
