Washington/British Columbia Trip – Day 1


Have you ever gone on a vacation and everything was perfect…the weather, the train pulls up just as you walk to the platform, the locations you chose to stay in, the traffic is light, the whale comes within 20 feet of your whale watching boat!  This was one of those trips.  I fell in love with the VRBO (Vacation Rental By Owner) in Seattle.  As you can see from the photos, the views were spectacular.

You could walk down to the beach…

The location is only a 10 minute drive from downtown Seattle and situated on the Puget Sound, in a neighborhood called Magnolia.  The first day was a little cloudy, so I was very surprised and in awe the morning of Day 2, when I looked to the South from the picture windows and rising, like an apparition, was Mt. Rainier, in all of its glory.  I had no idea it would be so dramatic and spiritual in nature.

We had dinner at Palisades Restaurant, which also has a lovely view.  If you have reservations for 5pm seating, it’s only $29 for a 3 course meal.  The food was good…not great.

  1. Don’t know what happen here … have missed your comment – this place has a stunning location – what a view – have heard about VRBO and I have visit their website for a trip to the Amalfi Coast – that never happen. If I was going to stay longer I would consider renting an apartment. Looked at apartments in Chicago, but they were more expensive then a hotel room.
