Summer in Indy

Last July was our first visit to Indianapolis where our son and his wife have relocated. They live in a neighborhood where older homes have been lovingly maintained and wear their character humbly. The yards were filled with flowers, birds, squirrels and even chipmunks.

Summer is for Travel {Seattle}

The iconic Space Needle and a view of the snowcapped mountains from Pike Place.

Seattle has a good transit system and is also a walkable city. The day was surprisingly sunny. The photo below marks an area called, obviously, China Town.

Unfortunately, I didn’t realize the shops in Pike Place start to close around 5 on weekdays. Beecher’s was already cleaning up and had their delicious cheeses put up for the day.

The flowers in this area are amazing. They are plentiful and vibrant.
