After spending a beautiful week in Seattle we started driving South into Oregon. We stopped for the night right after crossing the state border, in Astoria. There we marveled at the incredible bridge we had just crossed (and which we could see from our hotel room) and had the most delicious burger at Fort George Public House.

The nerd below was pretty much as exited as it gets during our visit of the Museum of Flight. We got to go aboard a Concord, an old Air Force Once, and saw lots and lots (and lots!) of planes. It was a fun way to escape the rain for a few hours.

We have a thing for climbing towers / seeing cities from the top... and so we couldn't pass on taking an elevator all the way up to the Columbia Center Sky View Observatory in Seattle! Here's the view from the 73rd floor.

One sunny afternoon I ventured to the Olympic Sculpture Park, a beautiful outdoor area that belongs to the Seattle Art Museum. The view onto Puget Sound was breathtaking and the walk back to the city center along the water was amazing.

I knew the Seattle public library was supposed to be a beautiful building but gosh was I impressed! I spent ages walking around, just taking in the light and feeling so happy that such pretty and well thought-out places exist in the world.
