I did not take any outfit photos while away; they were almost always covered by this coat. It was rainy, somewhat windy, and chilly most of the time. As you can see in the above photo, the hood was not as water-proof as I had hoped, allowing my hair to get wet and leaving it bedraggled once dried. Definitely NOT fashionable! I packed as lightly as possible, since we took carry-on bags only, and had to carry those bags with us part of the time before and after checking out of our hotel. Almost didn't take a second pair of jeans, but was glad I did so I had a dry pair to change into. If we go again next year, we'll look for backpacks, I will consider wearing boots, and we'll invest in a decent umbrella (ours is ancient and sucks bigtime!).

The day before we left on our trip, Some Postman bought me a new Canon compact camera. I've been wanting to upgrade for a while, so when I saw this one in the weekly ad for $49.99, I asked him for it. He agreed, but only if I promised to finish filing the stacks of photos in the pie cabinet. Ha ha! Yes, I will get to that project. I love to take pictures, but don't do a very good job of keeping them organized.
At any rate, I had fun learning to use this new little camera in Seattle. Here are a few of my favorite shots:

Fighting with my hair on the trip convinced me that I really do need a haircut. I'd been "growing it out" -- actually, just not bothering to get it cut -- but it really does look terrible without great pains and much hairspray. I've got an appointment Friday morning with my hairdresser, and did some searching on the 'net for a new look. I'm going to try something really different! It's kind of scary, but hey, it's only hair.
