Day 310: Slowdown

Tanker anchored in Edwards bay.

A slowdown by the longshoreman’s union has resulted in a back up at Seattle’s harbor. A tugboat is tethered to an anchored Tanker in Elliott Bay.

The temporary housing we have been assigned is in our old neighborhood of Lower Queen Anne and we are enjoying getting re-acclimated to Seattle; shopping at the same Safeway and getting our prescriptions at the familiar Bartell Drugs, buying fresh flowers at the Pike Street Market and walking the dog in Myrtle Edwards Park. There is comfort in the familiar. We’ve decide this is the neighborhood we want to live in and have narrowed our search to 3 or 4 buildings, all within a couple of blocks of each other. It’s home. Again.

Day 213: Hong Kong

We flew to Hong Kong for a couple of days because James had to leave China before his 30-day visa expired; Hong Kong is now my favorite Chinese city!
