Today was a real nice sightseeing day. The weather was perfect. My skin feels like I got myself a hint of a tan. So, yes, I am now convinced that bad weather propaganda is handed out by Seattleites to keep tourists out of town. Outrageous!
Greg took me on a Singles tour through town. We went by foot and bus, so I got to see several neighbourhoods (and fell slightly in love with Montlake). I don’t wanna bore with the details but I got to see all the good Singles locations: the cafe of Linda’s and Steve’s lunch date, the bench with the bronze man, Occidental Park, where Steve proposes over the historic chilli dog, Linda’s duplex, THE HOUSE (unfortunately Cliff had moved out) and, finally, Gasworks Park. Throw in the Moore Theatre, the OK Hotel, the troll under Fremont Bridge and some yummy Thai food and the day was complete.
And at this point I’ll have to give a big shout-out to Greg who is the best Seattle host I could have wished for. I’d never would have seen all the stuff he showed me if I’d gone on that tour by myself. Apart from that, I sleep in his comfy bed (while he’s moved onto the sofa), get yummy breakfast fry-ups, an Orca card (that I shamefully lost 😦 ) and lots of interesting and funny conversation. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I think I might keep you as my friend 😉
Looks like tomorrow I’ll be back on that Bainbridge ferry and I’ll get to see Paul’s and Justine’s cute kitten. Always a bonus for the cat person in me!
