44/52: The Pumpkin Patch

Friday night's train ride was a real treat.  One of the conductors I know put me up in a roomette for the journey north to Seattle.  It's quite a luxury to have your own little private car, if only for 4 hours.  I celebrated with a glass of sparking wine in the classic parlor car. What a way to start the weekend!

Last Saturday was our annual trek to Snohomish, Washington with the Seymour family to visit the pumpkin patch.

It was a cool morning with light sprinkles, but everybody had fun walking through the patch to find the most perfect pumpkins.  

After the pumpkin patch, we walked the streets of downtown Snohomish and had lunch at our favorite place, Fred's Rivertown Ale House.

On Sunday, Brian and I had a nice walk through Lincoln Park, and spotted a blue heron along the waters edge.
