Happy Mother's Day to all...


Me and grand kids awaiting a table in restaurant 

It's about 7:30 am Sunday morning and I'm busy 'catching up' on all the posts over the last 2 weeks that I missed reading while on the cruise. And I'm still trying to get back to normal routine...

But I do want to wish everyone out there a Happy Mother's Day!  We all went out to eat last night at Chuy's (Tex-Mex).  Son took this picture of me and 3 of my 4 grand kids.  My daughter, her husband, and grand daughter live in San Antonio, so we just spoke by phone. But we all had a good time, returning home to carrot cake and ice-cream.  Baby girl has decided that she LIKES ice-cream.

My body is back home, but my mind keeps returning to Alaska... so much natural beauty... such clean air... no traffic. I'd never survive the long cold winters, but it's a great place to spend some time. Do you know that Juneau, the capital of Alaska, has no roads in or out (well, it may have a road that goes about 15 - 20 miles out from the town, but then it just ends).  The only way in or out is by plane or boat. So the crime rate is low... they have 'no place to run'.


Huge handsome Seagull

But I digress...  I will start with Seattle.  I took this photo of huge Seagull in Seattle and could swear that he was posing for me.  He definitely knew he was handsome.

For the next two pictures, you really need to click on them and make them large to see how beautiful they are...






Trees are also in Stanley Park, Vancouver




























And lastly for today's post of Seattle, here is a picture of  Dungeness Crabs at Pike's Market - huge, sweet, and delicious!




Again... Happy Mother's Day!  And my trip photos will continue another day.  Please bear with me, but I need to share.

    1. Thanks, DJan. I do love to share. However, I'm afraid that I would blog or journal even if no one read my writings... and I don't know why... just always have. But am very happy to have blogger friends!

    1. That platter of food was from the Fish House in Stanley Park, Seattle. It wasn't mine, although I did taste a bit of it... the Salmon... and it was yummy.

    1. This whole trip re-opened my love for seafood. Coming from New Orleans we used to have boiled crab out on the lakefront every Friday... or mama fried oysters at home. But I don't eat much seafood in Dallas... and I do miss it.

  6. Super photos, Rian, and I hope you had a very happy Mother's Day. Here in the UK we celebrate Mother's Day much earlier on the 4th Sunday in Lent. Majestic trees and delicious seafood make a great start to your trip. :-)
