"Seattle was built out on pilings over the sea, and at high tide the whole city seemed to come afloat like a ship lifting free from a mud berth and swaying in its chains." ~ Jonathan Raban / by Jason Leach

7/7 Photo: Yeah, Seattle is a beautiful Skyline, Mt. Rainer in the background (bucket list to climb that peak)

7/8 Photo: Space Needle. Fun fact it is not the highest point in Seattle in which to get a view, but it certainly is expensive!

7/9 Photo: Congratulations to Mike and Nhien on their marriage! Of the only dates I had on my calendar this wedding was it.

7/10 Photo: After being stuck in standstill traffic for 2 hours 50 miles outside of Seattle I was rewarded with a great sunset as I was driving through Oregon.
