1. Snuggles in the Sky
In the midst of a chaotic season of my life, Lynn surprised me by paying for a plane ticket to Seattle. The stay was all planned out and we left at 6 AM to give us the most time in the city. The plane approached the rainy city as the sun rose and Lynn stirred from her nap. Lynn had been using Mr. Snuggles as a pillow and as she awoke, he wanted to see the dawn of a new day.
2. London Plane
Our first stop was coffee and crumpets at London Plane. As I sipped the sweet brown elixir and heard the soft pitter patter of rain on the city streets I felt the calm wash over me. I could breath again. I felt at home.
3. Chihuly Museum
Using glass as a medium for art isn't a new concept. But I never knew how much expression could be displayed from superheated sand. Chihuly glass and gardens rests at the feet of the impressive Space Needle but in our minds, gave us a better view than the sky deck ever could.
4. Pacific Science Center
Powerful lights illuminated the gigantic arches over the Pacific Science center. While everyone else was busy playing with the water installations below us, our eyes were drawn heavensward. Feeling so small in such a big city brought back feelings of adventure, normally attributed to the fascination of young children.
5. Freeway Park
Seeing free runners on t.v. traverse these strange steps with ease captured my interest. With some trepidation we maneuvered our way up and down freeway park. I looked back on the steps I had taken and gaps I had jumped and thought to myself “I make this look easy.”
6. Volunteer Park Conservatory
Art and nature collide at the Volunteer Park Conservatory. Every door a new passage to a different climate we left the rainy foggy weather behind to adventure through dense forests, humid deserts, and beautiful flower gardens.
7. Washington Park Arboretum
“That should hold.” I whispered under my breath as I carefully finished hanging the camera in the tree. We quickly ran under the cherry blossoms as the wind blew petals past our view. It felt as if I were in a Japanese poem as time slowed around us. When I went back to the camera, I looked back to find this adorable face waiting for me, uttering one single word, “Meep.”
8. University of Washington Boating
“Look how the ducks fly away from us! You have to chase them down loves, I want a picture!” she exclaimed as she exchanged her canoe paddle for her DSLR. I summoned my strength and paddled feverishly into the lily pads and duck pacts, so my love could get the perfect shot. What I didn’t know, was that her lens had chosen a new subject.
9. Woodland Zoo
It is impossible to deny her when she gets the glow in her eyes. Birds of every size and color glided across the room while I bought Lynn a seed stick. Within moments of giving it to her, a small green bird befriended her. He became our companion for the photoshoot, feasting away long enough to capture our hearts.
