|On the plane! Our departure came after a rough morning and a very real fear of missing our flight.... haha.
|My aunt and uncle's cat was not thrilled about housesitters.
|The moment we realized we weren't in the Midwest any more ;) hahaha
|Navy Museum in Bremerton.
|DH is a little too tall to sleep comfortably on a ship.
|Or sit comfortably in a fighter pilot seat!
|The ferry to Seattle.
|Funny fish lights in a seafood restaurant.
|DH was so excited for crab toast and then annoyed by the one tiny piece of crab on his plate -- a real bait and switch ;)
|Making an attempt at drinking some "local" wines (although one was from Idaho, whoops).
|In an edition of #textsfrommyhousesitter, my teeny dog was quite lonely without me.
|DH bought me a lovely opal and sapphire ring he saw me eyeballing at an antique store <3
|So. Much. Traffic. IDK how people live here.
|I did drag him up to two tack stores near Seattle, but just window shopped.
|Met up with an old college friend for coffee! :)
|Beach time! (it was all of 35 degrees, haha)
|Point No Point Lighthouse
|Cool driftwood horse.
|Brunch in Port Gamble at the Scratch Kitchen. Very hipster. Our water glasses were mason jars ;)
|I was deep in dog withdrawal at this point so I had to pet all the "shop dogs" in the quaint little stores.
We ventured over to Seattle via ferry for a day!
|Not only was it stupid cloudy, but part of the Space Needle was closed for construction.... so this was basically a giant waste of $50. Ugh.
|DH enjoyed the Pike Street Market (or whatever it's called) and bought $$$$ of fresh seafood (his kryptonite).
|He also enjoyed a seafood lunch at the Crab Pot (while I had yet another burger, lol).
|After 6 days of rain, we FINALLY saw the sun. Briefly.
|The other cat is even LESS impressed with housesitters. But apparently he hates everyone?
Now that DH is gone, I doubt I'll do much sightseeing by myself, so these are probably the only interesting photos that will come out of my trip! :) I'm having a wonderful time spending time with my grandmother, but I'll admit to being a bit homesick and ready to get back to the farm.
|DH home snuggling my teeny dog without me.... *sob*
