The calm before the storm.

After driving back from Seattle, life resumes in the Queen City. I frequent my favorite coffee shop and try to write a paper on dual consciousness, go out to breakfast with friends, enjoy amazing strawberries, have late-nite soup at diners, and sleep.

Now, I’m back at school, with presentations and papers leering at me. It has snowed almost 12 inches in the last few hours, I discovered a roll of film I forgot to develop, and life goes on, the way it does every day.

I hope you all are having a bearable Monday!

The rest of Seattle in photographs and words.

Er…I’m actually feeling quite lazy, so maybe more photographs than words.

In summary: Seattle was typically rainy, actually snowed a bit, had sunny patches, and we spent most of our time downtown and in the business district. It was cold, windy, and lovely. We ate large amounts of cheese, crepes, hot chocolate, sandwiches, and other sorts of good food. I had sushi once.

The end.

Only, not really. There are so much more words for a great city like Seattle, but sadly I am feeling very very sloth like and so might go take a nap.

Tschüß!

The Seattle Aquarium

I grew up frequently traveling to the East Coast to spend time on the beach and becoming entranced with sea life. Naturally, living in Montana is not conducive to being able to see sea creatures! Once upon a time, before my fear of deep water was realized, I used to want to become a marine biologist and even make it down into some of the deep sea trenches!

On our trip to Seattle, we stopped at the Seattle Aquarium. I don’t care if I’ve been there a couple times before- it never ceases to amaze me watching tiny seahorses play or petting sea stars. Plus, we went early in the morning, and got to mostly have the aquarium to ourselves, which was every shade of fantastic!

Also, those six-gill sharks in Puget Sound are AWESOME!  I am a big sharkophile (that is not a word) and those primordial beasts are amazing! 

Anyway, I’ll let these photographs speak for themselves!
