loose the Canadians upon them

I love Seattle colours.  The muddy greens, the muted blues, and all that grey look wonderful in the rain, backdropped by the lush vegetation of improbable October leaves.  

We arrived here yesterday, the first wave of a merry band of Communiqueters who will be holed up in a rented house in the happening Capital Hill area for the next five days.  After partaking of a happy hour (or two) at a bar down the road yesterday, we were thrilled to discover that the grocery store a block away not only has a great selection of wine, they've got stupid awesome deals if you sign up for a store loyalty card.  Guess who's all got QFC customer cards now?

Today's Underground Seattle tour has been delayed due to traffic which is holding up the next wave of participants arriving across the border.  But we will get there eventually.  There, and to the Experience Music Project, and, if somebody plays their cards right - the Duck Bus.  It might all depend upon the outcome of the cut-throat euchre game currently happening around the big wooden dining room table.

Shit could get real.

No offense intended to Seattle, but I've never really thought of it as a destination. But they should really hire you for a tourism consultant, because I wish I was there now.

I wish you were here right now too, John! You would have a great time hanging with your blogging friend.
Personally Seattle has always been a favourite destination of mine.

Barbara -- Sounds like you had a fun time in the Emerald City. And I have to quite agree with John about Seattle not being much of a destination town -- given the unfriendliness of downtown Seattle. but it's my hometown.

Hope you can come again soon.

I love Seattle, Jan! I've always had very friendly encounters in your beautiful city. I certainly plan to visit again, and thank you for visiting here!
