Some of the items I was most hesitant about putting on my list were the ones that involved travel. Sure, there are plenty of places I’d like to see—and many of those aren’t that far away or difficult to get to. Unlike some of other 101/1001 items—baking cupcakes, hanging pictures, practicing piano—I can’t squeeze it in after work. Add the increased financial commitment and advanced planning… it can be a bit daunting.
I’m sure there’s some literary quote that that could say it more eloquently than I, but it is those challenges that make the project more exciting.
My dad is my number one Potter co-conspirator. My dad just retired. The exhibition was scheduled to run through the end of January. The pieces couldn’t have fallen into place any better.
The exhibit was awesome. I was amazed to see how much thought goes into each prop and costume. In fact, one of my favorite things was looking at the shoes that went with each costume. I’m a little bummed that you couldn’t take pictures in exhibition… I’d still probably be in there!
We had traveled to Seattle during the summer of 2001, so there were definitely a few places we wanted to see again, as well as some new sites.
New: The amazing Central Library.
Old: Pike Place Market
After braving the wind and rain for our first day, we took a Northwest Tour, which was pretty similar to a tour we took ten years ago, but just as interesting a fun… as well as a nice relief from the elements.
