Monday, May 15, 2017, Seattle (in the rain)

Sunday was not nice in Port Orford. We hustled on to get to Tacoma, Washington, stopping at outlet malls on the way. We’re looking for a last year’s Eddie Bauer down jacket. We’ve each got one, but Jacqueline would like another.

After some effort at the Best Western Tacoma Dome, which I stayed a few years ago for about eight nights, found our reservation. I’d made it that morning by phone, since I was running late. In spite of my spelling my name twice, I was looked under as Jaylor. Taylor’s one of the 10 most common names in English, but never mind.

It was, of course, dark and cold and raining.We walked down to the public transportation office and got passes for the bus. The next one was five minutes later, so we hopped on. Again, I was really glad to leave the driving to them…lots of traffic, though it kept moving.

We got out and headed for Pike Place, which — of course — I’d forgotten the exact location of.

We got there eventually, as the place was closing down. The large white area of the photo is the sky I didn’t crop — it was really overcast.

Then it was back on the bus and back to Tacoma and some dinner in the hotel. We managed to see no glass whatsoever in the heart of glass country.
