Sorry about the dark video.. was in Harry's truck and it was past midnight.
Today was our travel day. We were leaving Aberdeen Washington and our friends The Moyers. We had planned to visit Seattle, WA because we wanted to see the Space Needle. Many folks suggested that we visit the Sci fi Museum and I would have agreed with them but everyone keeps forgetting that we have our dog Daisy with us. That limits us on what we can do and where we can eat.
So we got stuck in traffic in Seattle but finally made it to the Space Needle. It was smaller looking in the skyline compared to the high rises but when you get up close to it, it's pretty tall. Loved the "pride" flag on top.
After Seattle, Amy Moyer mentioned a really cool town that she and Rick had visited called Leavenworth. It's a small town that is built like a Bavarian/German town. Buildings, the food, the beer and the dancers all were all in authentic German/Bavarian style. Since Harry is from Austria Amy thought Harry would enjoy that town.l. she was right. We stopped by for about an hour and walked up and down the streets.. also watched the German dancers (see video in blog). Again because of the dog we couldn't go in any of the stores or restaurants, but it just means we have to go back in the future.
After Leavenworth we didn't have a plan.. well we did have a plan. We were going to drive to Spokane, WA and stay in a hotel but there were several events going on this weekend and every single hotels for 50 miles around were sold out. So we decided that we were going to try and make it to Montana before parking and sleeping in the truck.
So we headed toward Montana, and let me say Eastern Washington couldn't be more different from Western Washington.. if it's much warmer but the big difference is the terrain. West side was nothing but beautiful trees..East side is farm land as far as the eye can see.. some green some dirt. Felt like forever driving through that.
Speaking of driving, Harry drove from 9am to 2pm I drive from 2pm to midnight. I don't think I have every driven 10 hours in one day.
Before we left Washington we stopped in Spokane to pick up some dinner at Panda Express. Then we drove into Idaho. At this time it was dark so we didn't see much and finally we made it to Montana. Just over the boarder of Idaho and Montana was a rest stop and this is were we finally stopped and crashed for the night.
All in all it was a long long driving day but we got to see so many beautiful sights. We also were in three states in one day :)
