Well, my morning started at about 4.30am this morning when my first alarm went off. I hit snooze and rolled back over. by 4.45am, I knew I just had to get up. I had to shower, have atleast one coffee, finish packing my bag and walk to the bus stop at the front of the hotel, all by 6am.
Today was the day that I got to see my parents for the first time in a year! I have the next 9 days off work to spend with them. They have been travelling around the north west of the United Stated and an Alaskan cruise and now they will be travelling around Canada with me.
First stop, Seattle!
That is why I had to be at the bus stop at 6am, to catch the bus to Calgary airport and fly out at 1pm to Seattle where I was meeting them.
With the one hour time difference, I arrived at about 2.3pm and still had an hour or so before they were meeting me at the airport. So worked on some old blogs for a little while until they arrived.
Finally when they did, it was an emotional reunion and Mum and Dad had to say goodbye to friends that they had dropped off at the airport.
During the afternoon in Seattle, we stopped in at The Fairmont Olympic Hotel Seattle (unfortunately, they were fully booked out and we didn’t stay there)
It was turning into a wet and chilly afternoon with the weather turning. Apparently Seattle is famour for it though. It didn’t dampen our spirits and we made our way to the Space Needle 🙂
You are pretty cool Seattle!
