View from Seattle
I am out of the city for a week for a family reunion and a wedding. Washington State is absolutely gorgeous even though it's too hot for me. This is the view from my motel window. A beautiful finger of Puget Sound, right outside my balcony...and all for a reasonable price.
My niece was married at her new husband's family home, built by the grandfather from 1963 on. The home overlooks Pulsbo, a old fishing town, again on Puget Sound. Watching her being given away by my brother was emotional as I remember her as a darling little baby crawling around on the floor. Now she's a beautiful young woman, as are my other nieces.
But I still can't believe that I am old enough to have three great nephews and three great nieces.
My nieces and nephews much have been child brides and grooms. No way am I that old!
