We arrived before the hotel's check in time
so we had the Mayflower Park store our bags and we went shopping!
(More about that in the next post!)
The weather was quite lovely, warm and sunny.
Seattle can be cool and rainy but she performed beyond our expectations
as did our accommodations.
We were delighted with the suite
and the Love Thy Canadian Neighbour Package included breakfast and valet parking!
The service and the staff are amazing and we feel very spoiled...
I suppose that is why we keep returning to our
"home away from home"
Oliver's is the lounge in the Mayflower and we enjoyed a cocktail
Mr. HB had an Oliverita which is like a marguerita
and I sipped a French 75
(the bartender filled the glass so full!)
We walked for many hours every day taking in the sights and sounds of downtown.
Seattle is such a pretty city located by the ocean and the snow capped mountains beyond
the people are friendly
the streets are green
so many great spots to stop for coffee
cafes and restaurants galore
lots to see and do...
looking up at the canopy of trees
people were out and about enjoying the fresh air
a giant game of chess was being played in the square!
Open spaces and greenery
people friendly spaces...
We watched children as they ran through this water feature
giggling and laughing as the water poured all around them
Pike Place Market
in my next post.
Thank you for the many anniversary wishes...
officially our 37th is not until July 20th
I suppose we will be celebrating for a few more weeks!
I have been away from my computer for a few days
now need to catch up on my blog reading...
