We had dinner with my parents, then came home and caught up on Designated Survivor, which feels like a mediocre West Wing-Madam Secretary mashup this season. Here are some photos from our cruise in Elliott Bay, where among other things we saw the Space Needle, Post-Intelligencer building, Amgen Helix bridge, Great Wheel, aquarium, cruise ships, stadiums, and Mount Rainier:
