Yesterday, with many thanks to the Veterans both whom we know and those we don't, it was a day out of the ordinary for some. We attended the first Universitiy of Washington Women's non-conference basketball game for 2011-12. We lost! Last evening, super GS and I went to the Seattle Children's Theater presentation of Robin Hood. It was great. There were 4 actors portraying about 10-12 different parts. It was action packed and very well done. Today is the last soccer game of the season for said GS and perhaps a U of W Volleyball match. Who says they've nothing to do?
But back to our journey to the east (we call anything past Chicago 'east', although I know they don't).
Lake Michigan on one of our lovely, cold and clear days. Note the snow fences already in place.
Closer to "home" a very idyllic horse farm,
Another short jaunt to Grand Haven, also on Lake Michigan. Not quite such blue skies, but still a very nice outing,
I'll put our wander through Meijer Gardens on another post.
Flying home was as good as flying gets these days - which ain't great. Every seat filled and lots of folks traveling with small people who don't enjoy it nearly as much as one would hope - but being who they are, they let everyone know of their displeasure. Two small bags of peanuts (12 grams) and a coke product to drink. Thank goodness for a Book on Tape to pass the time. We arrived a bit ahead of schedule but got to 'enjoy' repairs to the baggage conveyor belt (45 minutes wait).
