We left Anchorage at 7am and made it to the Seattle Art Museum a little after noon where we met our daughter and granddaughter for some play time and then some Indian lunch. The came with us on the train back to the airport before saying good bye.
These are some pictures of Mt. Rainer as we left Seattle. They're each from somewhat different angles. But overall it's like looking at one side of the moon as we flew by on the west, from the north.
This last one show the southern side.
We just walked into my mom's house. We haven't been here in about six months. When we last left we worked in a frenzy trying to get it clean and empty of things that had real importance to us. There's enough furniture that people can stay here and we've had some friends use it during the time. And the woman who cleaned the house so well for my mom still comes by regularly.
All that is a preface to the pleasant surprise we got when we got the alarm turned off and walked in. It looks good. I know that tomorrow when we look in the garage we'll find a lot of stuff still to do, but in the house things look better than I expected. And when it's light out tomorrow I can see how the garden has fared. And then I'll make a list of things to do while we're here.
