Seattle Quick Trip

Quick trip to Seattle last weekend. Here's my hotel view of Lake Washington. If you click to enlarge, you'll see a float plane on the dock.
This is the new Starbucks on Olive Way - the first one in the world to serve wine and beer.
Cheers! My parents and I shared a bottle of wine.

Roadside Images Boise to Cannon Beach, OR

These images are in no particular order, but I bet those who have made the trip will recognize many of these :)

The Curtis Hotel in Denver

I'm on the "Laugh out Loud Floor," otherwise known as the 7th floor. The Curtis pegs itself as a boutique hotel, even though it is a DoubleTree property. Each floor has a theme - one is the "big hair" floor with lots of Marge Simpson art.
We get Groucho on our floor. The drawback for this hotel is that I have a non-smoking room that reeks of tobacco. It's surrounded by smoking rooms and the stench wafted into my room all night. They obviously have ventilation issues, so if you're sensitive to tobacco smoke, do not stay here.

Quick Day in Boulder, Colorado

The view from the Boulderado hotel. I didn't see much of the town. Just zipped in for a meeting and left in the AM for Denver for a conference.
My room at the Boulderado. That's a lot of flowers!

One of the vats to make the cheese curds at Beecher's in Seattle. It's our favorite cheese!

Yep - We Went Up

Fifty-two stories in an elevator to get to the top of the Space Needle. Cost close to $52, too!
