    Our holiday present to each other was to spend a couple days in downtown Seattle browsing the shops and soaking up the holiday spirit unique to a major city core.

    We traveled yesterday afternoon and checked into the Vintage Park Hotel, our favorite boutique hotel in Seattle which has a wonderful restaurant, Tulio's.

    Last night we hit some of the major department stores and checked out the Pike Place Market. The market was closed, but it was interesting to walk through it while the few merchants there cleaned up their booths. What a change it will be when we go back today, when it will be wall to wall people.

    Our plans are to spend another night here and then wake on Christmas day with a nice breakfast before heading north to-wards home, but stopping to visit family first.

    So I am off this morning, first to the market and then to hit the used bookstores.

    Some pictures of last night.

    Very busy with extra services at church, then dinner at my son's. In between getting some clean up done in the shop and installing new miter saw (no pics yet). Got to get ready for several backlogged projects that I want to get moving on right after Christmas.

    Well i like Darrens smily just dont see it as an option in ours.
    But my plans are finish installing wired home network so son can hook up the Xbox to internet for live without the wireless adapter.

    Then off to some friends for Christmas eve maybe a few carols if i have anything to do with it. Scare the old squirrels away with my singing.

    Tomorrow morning is when we open presents. I still have to wrap the ones i got LOML. Will do that later.

    Then afternoon we off to friends for Xmas lunch and celebration. Hopefully Sat i get to work at finishing my bench and start a real project. At least i should say finish a few i have started but not completed.

    That will be it for us.
    cheers
