I just spent a week in Seattle, joined by family and friends, to celebrate the coming publication of my memoir,
The Mysterious Builder of Seattle Landmarks The Search for my Father
The following link shows bits of the story, but only if you have access to Facebook, I’m learning. https://www.facebook.com/mysteriousbuilder/
It rained some—what else do you expect in Seattle in March— still, the sun shone brightly for three days! We took in lots of northwestern eye candy. Especially snow covered mountains and glaciers— Mt. Rainier and the Olympic Peninsula. First a ferry through the islands to Victoria, then a pre-season tour of the beauteous Butchart Gardens, a convivial dinner with Canadian kin at a craft brewery. Many totem poles that made us wish we had more time to learn about First Nation culture, and a celebratory high tea. Later, after brunch at the Seattle Space Needle, we wandered slowly through the other-worldy Dale Chihully Glass Museum. Two of our younger members went hiking.
