Memories from Seattle’s Pike Place Market and the Showbox

Years later when I worked downtown, I’d visit the Market on… Continue Reading “Memories from Seattle’s Pike Place Market and the Showbox”

The Power of Snoqualmie Falls

We had some errands to run yesterday in the Snoqualmie Valley and stopped by Snoqualmie Falls on the way home. The river has been at flood stage all week – with many parts of the valley flooded. The falls were raging with power, with… Continue Reading “The Power of Snoqualmie Falls”

A Fishing Trip Back in Time at Mineral Lake

Mineral Lake is to my husband what Hood Canal is to me: a place full of childhood memories, of long summer days spent camping, fishing, and swimming.
