Our return to the Seattle area was another homecoming, including more quality time with family like this suburban neighborhood hike.
Our few more days there seemed to both fly past, and to open toward eternity.
We connected with friends there not visited in decades, and some with whom we’ve kept in touch or reconnected in recent years. We hiked up to Twin Falls catching snippets of quiet conversations on the trail, and standing in awe of the rain forest beauty.
We also took some time exploring alone together, including a leisurely walking tour reconnecting with Seattle Center.
The EMP was still our favorite among things to see there, as we joined many others in snapping lots of pix like this view interacting with the Space Needle and monorail.
This lovers moment might be partly influenced by Gehry’s fluid design.
On the other side of this architectural sculpture we paused to watch kids of all ages enjoying a compatible playground installation.
Relaxed, rested and refreshed, we prepared for another flight to complement these delightful days.
