Here There and Everywhere

Leaving Seattle

It’s hard to leave. The last few days have been filled with pre-departure must-dos – spending time doing some things with Mom, seeing old friends I won’t see again for a while, packing (aargh) and preparing for the next leg of the journey.

I have an early flight, early enough that I zip right through Seattle, and there is no one to check my car in at the drop off place and I have to trundle over to their rental location to turn in my mileage, etc. Aargh again.

From there on, however, everything is smooth. It is a beautiful day, and leaving Seattle is a gorgeous departure:





I arrive just in time to capture the sunset over the Bayou in Pensacola 🙂

  1. Such a lovely sunset except for those ugly wires. Very hard to avoid them in an urban landscape 😦

  2. Nice photos of the city and the clouds they look so fresh and clean among the mountains

  3. Mathai, I ran into that wire problem both in Seattle and in Pensacola 😦 I guess it costs a lot to bury them, but it is so much nicer, and it seems to me it protects them from high wind risks, too.

  4. Thanks, Daggero, I liked the tips of the mountains breaking through the clouds. It was a rare day. 🙂
