Highland Park and Olympic Sculpture Park

September in Seattle is still vivid in my mind and these photos bring back happy memories of a month that passed too quickly. The weather was nothing short of fantastic. Only two days with some drizzle, not even enough to frizzle my hair!

The panoramic view from Highland Park is a postcard picture, in fact, this is the spot where some postcards have been taken of Seattle with the magnificent Space Needle in the distance.

      Thank you very much Ute! I’m glad you like the little video I made. I do miss Jean on her birthday. It’s been over 16 years since I saw her on her birthday and 10 years since I saw her at Christmas. I’m thankful I get to see her once a year, this time in September in Seattle, last year in Germany!

  3. Your pictures from Seattle are always great. What a park !!! You look so lovely in this tunic, and I always admire how you pose – like a professional dancer, so beautifully. Cheers – Margot 🙂

      OH WOW!!! You’ll just love it! I have some more Seattle posts coming up. I’ve been there four times and there’s so much to see and do, you can’t possibly see it all in one trip! I do hope you’ll stop by Jean’s store Drizzle and Shine. Tell her “carmen sent you” and you’ll get 10% off!

    I wish I could visit Seattle so much! It’s always been a place I’ve wanted to visit, but since I’ve seen your photos, my illusion has increased. I love your little dress, it’s a little delicacy of fashion, with a print and design that you love. And it’s wonderful how you complement it in your outfit, pure delicacy and style. You’re really beautiful with it!
