1000 places to see before you die - #7

It was a cold drive into work today. My little car slipped as I maneuvered through the icy curves, and I wondered aloud if the sprinkling of snow on the sidewalks constituted enough reason to call it a snow day. Then, as I was reaching the climax of psyching myself up enough to call it a day and head back home I saw Lake Washington with Mt. Rainer off in the distance. Ahh yes, this is why I love living in Seattle. Sure it rains a lot. And, yes the multitude of grey days drain the life right out of me. But, every once in a while you head over the hill and are treated with a view with the power to wipe out the memory of all the rainy days that proceeded.

So, here we go …. In my list of 1000 places to see before you die #7 – Seattle, WA.

I have to agree with you on this one! Having lived in Seattle for several years, I can tell you that it is not only an amazing place to see on a sunny day but, the perfect place to go out to dinner.
Living in the country now, my husband and I often search for some good food. Last night we ended up at the old shaft (approx 4 hours from the ocean). The new name has "Seafood Grotto" promptly displayed. I once again swear by the fact that you should NEVER eat seafood if you are not near the water.
God Bless Seafood in Seattle!
