Greetings from Bellevue

Adam had to work on Thursday and Daniel had an eye doctor appointment, so Paul and I went to Seattle Center in the morning to visit the glorious Chihuly Garden & Glass, then had lunch at Grecian Corner before meeting Daniel. We drove to the Bellevue Botanical Garden, where we saw many flowers, tall evergreens, a swinging bridge over a ravine, and bunnies before going to meet Adam at his summer place of residence and heading to the Lodge at Bellevue Square to have dinner at the glorious Cactus. We have just returned to the hotel from Daniel's apartment and I caught a Lunatone on the way, which is a delightful way to end the day!

Reflected in the Chihuly Garden with the Space Needle...

It was very bright in the glass house.

This is "Black Lightning" by Ronald Bladen with the Space Needle behind it.

And this is the Waterfall Wall at the Bellevue Botanical Garden.

Here we are by an actual waterfall...

...and crossing the suspension bridge over the ravine forest.

We met this bunny by the lavender in the flower and herb garden.

And here are my men on the deck at the AirBnB that is younger son's summer home in Bellevue.
