OH Joanne, how beautiful!! I am so glad you are having wonderful time (as they used to say on the old post cards).

Thanks for the blog postcard--so cool! I may never see Seattle, but I saw Seattle through your eyes. Looks beautiful.

Can you imagine going to market every day?

Looks like you are having fun! Thanks for the pictures - better than any postcards.

Reminds me of my one and only trip to Seattle. Except, I NEVER saw the sky look like that - I had the stereotypical "Seattle weather" the whole time I was there!

Blessings! Dawn
