We’ve arrived in Seattle. We’ve come to the awesome library looking for comments, but appears as if everyone is asleep, or they find our blog boring! Sorry!
Portland public library was built at the turn of the century and is very elegant. Portland itself is exceptionally pretty and its Japanese Gardens and International Rose Garden is quite beautiful. For those public transit buffs amongst you the the Max light rail cars that trundle through downtown and then onto a highspeed subway are very impressive.
Mr Rann is basing his efforts around Oregon, in most cases there are things that we can learn. For those Sushi Train devotees we went to Todai in Portland a “all you can eat” Sushi Buffet. Truly dangerous territory.
We left Portland at around 7:00 and arrived in Seattle at about 10:30am. The I-5 was pretty free flowing most of the way we missed both peak hours (Portland and Seattle). We drove buy Mount St Helen, but couldn’t see a thing because of the persistent fog that the West Coast seems to be covered in. That was bit of a bummer, so like you we are watching it from TV.
We have contemplated particle masks, but we have been reliably advised, by the the hundreds of tv news bulletins, that that the wind will not be blowing our direction!
