So, first, I joined a travel group - Pink Suitcase Sisters. Great Group. My first big trip was this August ..we went to Seattle. This is a rather sentimental trip for me. My Grandparents lived in Seattle in 1928 to help my mom deal with her asthma (she was a baby)..I have a drawing of the cabin they lived in..I'll try to scan and post. My grandmother was an artist and often drew and painted. Also, one of the last times my mom saw her father was in Seattle. She talked a lot about the Space Needle..which like me is 50 this year. Way cool.
So we flew AirTran. Have to say I was disappointed. No food even though it was about six hours. The Flight Attendant was rude and was not helping some unruly unattended children. However, our tour guide complained and we were awarded some vouchers.
|Both of us are 50 woohoo!|
|Very nice room!|
We stayed at the Alexis Hotel and I had my own room. I highly recommend both the hotel and staying by yourself. I could sleep when I wanted, read, talk to my friends, talk to myself ..etc. Very nice. This is what my room looked like.
Ok..I'm off to eat some birthday cake and drink some very sweet wine. I'm woosy about wine..unless it's sweet I don't bother. (Arbor Mist anyone? ) I know this will offend my wine friends but give me an appletini any day.
Have a good night!
