    Window Shopping in Seattle

    The wife and I decided to take a couple of days off during the week and travel to downtown Seattle to do a little holiday window shopping. Staying at our favorite little hotel, the Vintage Park. But first we had to stop in the SOHO district to visit Seattle Pottery Supply. No, not for me. My wife is into slab work ceramics and this is the store for ceramic supplies in the PNW. I forego hitting the hardwood lumbers down here, because she would not appreciate me trying to load up her car with some care packages for me. That will have to wait until I bring my truck. I also passed up on Rockler & Woodcraft in the same area.

    After lunch we visited the Market.

    Then it was on to some shopping. I really should get something for Larry Merlau, but what! Since I did not go to Woodcraft or Rockler, where am I going to find a store that will have something that Larry needs?


    Wait, what's this? Hmmm.

    Tonight, some family is meeting us for dinner. Should be an enjoyable evening. Tomorrow is a nice breakfast and the trip back to Bellingham.

    We also enjoyed the time Darren. It was great evening spent with you, your wife and your co-worker. Next time you come to the Washington, I will show you my shop and we can talk some woodworking. Safe traveling on Saturday.

    Ha

    Cool! A semi stealth get-together. I'd jump at the chance to visit with Bill again, and I'm still waiting for the time I can meet Darren face to face.
