Road Trip to Pacific Northwest: On The Road to Seattle
After breakfasting at the hotel, we set out for a long drive to Seattle. We first stopped for coffee and then I took the wheels. I drove a solid 2-3 hours without encountering traffic. When the husband took over the driving chores, we started to get into one traffic snarl after another. We were delayed tremendously around the Portland area. It took forever to cross the border, our drive was now interrupted by grass fire by the interstate. After crossing the Washington border, we had to stop for coffee. Not for the caffeine, but just to get out of the sitting position, stand up and stretch our legs. We have been driving since 9 am and it's nearly twilight. It was one long drive.
By the time we arrived in Seattle it was around 8 pm and Pike Place was closed. We walked around a bit just to see it.
Next, on the drive to the hotel we made a stop at a grocery store to pick up some dinner. Unfortunately when we got to the hotel, we found out that we accidentally reserved a SMOKING room and no available NON SMOKING room to swap with. Well we stayed in the room and after some moments the smell did not bother either of us. Dinner in the room and then a shower and then off to dreamland. Big day tomorrow.
