First flight in 16 months! I think this must be the longest I've not flown in my life since I first started flying. Packing, planning, and traveling efficiently are definitely skills that require brushing up, but I was grateful and thrilled once the trip was in progress. Seattle is green as ever. Last time I visited was with my friend Michelle about five years ago (posted here and here!). I was just about to start my first big adult job and she was waiting to get into medical school. Now she's matured into a medical resident living in Seattle. Compared to the last time, my photos got better, but our friendship remains unchanged.
Having done most activities inside the city, we went to Whidbey Island for the first time where we had lunch in Langley, visited Price Sculpture Forest, and basked in the cliffside sunshine. I also got to revisit Chihuly Garden and Glass and Pike Place Market on another day.
