7/52: Back to Seattle
I finally made it back to Seattle last Friday night...but just barely. Had it not been for Brian and I driving back from Portland, I'm not sure how I would have gotten home. With all the torrential rains this past week, a mudslide between Portland and Seattle halted Amtrak trains for 48 hours. Friday trains were cancelled with no alternate transportation.
Then, to make matters worse, the traffic northbound on I-5 Friday night was horrendous. We decided to take a little detour and ended up at Red Wind Casino east of Olympia. We let the traffic die down, ate an amazing dinner and came home with lots of money in our pockets. For a spur of the moment side-trip...we had one of the best Friday night date night adventures....EVER!
The rest of the weekend was spent quietly at home. We took a 3 mile walk on Saturday morning and I planted some spring flowers on Sunday, despite the fact that Seattle had 6 inches of snow less than a week ago....I felt that it is time to release Spring!
