Sunny in Seattle

What a gorgeous day in January: sun shining, blues skies, green grass and so many green bushes and trees that it looks like springtime! I’ve even seen blossoms.

Perfect day for riding the gigantic Seattle Great Wheel, with a spectacular view of Seattle and Puget Sound.

It’s not always so sunny at this time of year, so Jean and I took advantage of it and explored Pike Place and some of the nearby shops. It was mild enough that I saw women with bare legs and sandals. That is unheard of in winter where I come from.

I wore my new mod inspired tunic that I bought for this trip.

I often buy something and wear it home.

Do you like Ferris Wheels?

This one is my favourite!

      Thank you Rebecca! I was immediately drawn to it the moment I saw it! The best part is, it’s not only comfortable and soft, but was on sale for $20.

      Have a sunny day!

      Thank you Brian! We’ve had some mild, sunny days and anything is better than shoveling snow, scraping ice off the car and walking through slush! We went to a Tory Burch store (my first time) and took some photos.

      Have a great day!
