Magnificent Views Sailing From Seattle

One year ago today we returned to Seattle from our second cruise.

We’d left the Emerald City seven days before under cloudy skies fretting about the weather. Why had we booked so late?

The answer was two-fold. First, to celebrate our anniversary. Second, it didn’t really matter. As the ship sailed out of the Straight of Juan de Fuca to the Pacific Ocean, the sunset over the Olympic Mountains was magnificent – providing some of the best views of the entire trip.

Having gone on exactly two cruises I hardly consider myself an expert. But if I could only do these two from Seattle – one north to Alaska – and this one, south to Monterey – I think I would be satisfied.

Someday – when the pandemic is far, far behind us.

  1. Despite the lovely images, and reading about your maritime adventures, being on a ship for so long still doesn’t appeal to me in the least. πŸ™‚
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. What a great way to celebrate your anniversary! Beautiful photos and beautiful city! Thanks for sharing and have a good day πŸ˜€ Aiva

  3. I was last in Seattle for the World’s Fair, I think, which shows you how long it has been. The skyline is so different that if shown it without a title I would have no idea where it was.

    • Wow. Yes, it’s definitely different from 1962. Then we had the new Space Needle on one end, and what was once the largest skyscraper west of the Mississippi, the Smith Tower on the other, now tiny and dwarfed in the Seattle skyline.
