Our World!!



Ah, the time keeps slipping by so quickly!! And here it is Monday and time to visit Our Worlds!!  I have to admit that while I love Oregon and Portland, I do miss living close to the water as I did in Seattle. So, since it has just been gray and grumpy here lately, I decided to make a quick trip – through photos – back to Seattle for a winter visit!! Hope you enjoy!!

I always enjoy your Seattle memories Sylvia :)The harbour shots look so familiar to me, not so the majestic mountains.

Love your Seattle pictures. (I don't think I'm biased ... LOL) No matter where I go when travelling, it's always great to get back to the Emerald City.

Beautiful water photos from Seattle. I agree! I would miss the water if I didn't live close to it!

You must miss living by the water very much. Good to have such fabulous photos as a reminder.

When the weather turns Grumpy we can always head for warmer climes via our pics. Lovely captures of boats on still water & that lovely flurry of seagulls. Happy week Sylvia.

It's nice that you captured these wonderful times in Seattle. It's a great city. I love the water, too, and that was what was nice about living in Ft. Lauderdale.

Hope you have a fine evening!

Terrific memories of Seattle!

On a nice day, Seattle may be the most beautiful city in the country, as it's got everything - water, mountains, and a great cityscape. A wonderful trip back through memory lane. Have a great week, Sylvia.

Each photo is so lovely. Particularly love the glow of light colours on the water.

You know, I think I would like to live in Seattle for just a little while. I loved our trip there a couple years ago.

Tulsa and Portland get compared a lot. Apparently we share a lot of demographics. I've only just driven through Portland. It seemed like a good town but what can you tell from the airport and freeway?

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
