Hotel (places to stay)

June 2014: Seattle, WA

In June 2014, we accompanied Stephen’s mom to Tacoma, Washington so she could visit her childhood friend, Helga.  While she was at Tacoma, Stephen and I stayed in Seattle at a bed-and-breakfast, went to the famous Pike Place, and squeezed in a visit to the Boeing factory, met up with my friends Tammi and Diane from Vancouver, and a trip to the Bavarian Village of Leavenworth.

Located about 1 hour north of Seattle is the Boeing factory.  We were not allowed to take photos inside, but the souvenir photo they provided had pretty much the picture of the factory.

After the Boeing tour, I convinced Stephen to drive to Leavenworth, a German village about 2 hours away on highway 2.
