That's My World!

That's My World is hosted each week by Klaus and the My World team, Klaus, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy and me. Click on the icon and share your world with others from all over Our World! So! How is your world this week? Have you taken time to see the beauty there? What is it about your world that makes you smile or laugh or feel grateful for? My good friends, James and Chiaki from Portland were in Seattle last week and came to take me to lunch at a great Italian Restaurant, Tutta Bella Neapolitan where we had a fabulous pizza -- really Italian style!! From there we went to take photos of Seattle from the opposite side of the harbor from where we usually go. Of course, I forgot my camera!! I shouldn't have been surprised -- there are days when I forget just about any and everything!! Ah the joys of old age! But never mind that, James didn't forget his and we headed out to get some shots for me to share with you today!!


First there was the pizza!!

Then there was Mark Twain to go with the photos! 
I did not attend his funeral, but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it.  — Mark Twain


Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear.  — Mark Twain

Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.  — Mark Twain

Man is the only animal that blushes. Or needs to.  — Mark Twain

Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.  — Mark Twain

Some people bring joy wherever they go, and some people bring joy whenever they go.
Mark Twain


If we were supposed to talk more than listen we would have been given two mouths and one ear.
And so ended a beautiful day and visit! 
Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Your harbor is beautiful from either side! It's nice to see the city and ships. Twain sure knew how to give a backhanded complement!

Beautiful photos, Sylvia, I do hope I get to see Seattle some day. I love all the skyline shot. Pizza looks yummy...

Martha Z said...

It looks like you had great weather for your visit. Thats because you sent the rain and clouds south, to us! That's ok, it may clear out the haze and give us some interesting skies.

That is a BIG city. Don't think I ever saw pictures of it before. Such a difference between all the entries. Such an eye-opener for those of us that don't travel much.

Awesome skylines, Sylvia and so sharp. I smiled when I saw the pizza - we had pizza today - "Greek special" - when we came back to Sweden.

Wonderful to have friends come for a visit.

You cannot go eat out anymore without seeing someone taking pictures of food before they eat it. Am guilty of that too. Times have change eh?That pizza looks so tempting? Is that bacon?

eileeninmd said...

Sylvia, wonderful photos from your piece of the world. The pizza looks good. The ferry reminds me of my recent trip to Bainbridge Island to Seattle. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful week.

Fantastic set of photos! You made me hungry with that photo of pizza :)) I think I need to leave my table right now to eat something hahaha!

Al said...

Great photos as always, Sylvia. I remember visiting that market when I was in Seattle earlier this year, it's quite the fun area. Seattle really is such a beautiful city. Have a great week!

SandyCarlson said...

I especially love your cityscapes. The clean lines, the feeling that I can touch those buildings, the subtle light....exquisite.

Susan at Stony River said...

Oh Sylvia, so sorry to hear about the forgotten camera episode -- how frustrating! I remembered my camera today but it had NO card in it, argh! And of course we'd gone specifically to take pictures. Ah well.

Seattle's beautiful as always -- my son is itching to get back (okay, nagging...
:-D

JayLeigh said...

Oh, goodness, now I've *got* to go make some pizza! That looks so yummy! The pictures are truly beautiful!

Lawstude said...

Trish ~ ♥ ~ said...

the skyline is fabulous and the pizza looks yummy!

J Bar said...

Fantastic shots. Thanks for your comment on my blog, Sylvia. I'm taking a bit of a holiday this week, so I'm not getting much of a chance to log on. That's why I was a bit late with the 'My World' link and not visiting many blogs. Cheers.

George said...

Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos of your part of the world. Thanks, too, for the great quotes. Now if you could only have shared your pizza with us.

Indrani said...

I love the shots you took, beautiful skyline.

lotusleaf said...

Sylvia, these shots are as good as yours. My camera acts up sometimes, and even with a camera, I can't take pictures.

Naturedigital said...

A great post of your beautiful world again Sylvia.
Hope you are having a lovely week.

I just watched Jamie Oliver in America. I am surprised that some people don't know what food to eat.
