Seattle day 4, Breakfast at Chinook's, lunch at Ronda

PHOTOS The weather is still fine, sunny, 21 C and sometimes a few clouds. This morning we had a real American Breakfast at Chinook' s. It's in the harbor, Seattle has a big fishing industry, and lots of fishshops. The place was filled with purple balloons and fans from the Washington Huskies (Footballteam, unfortunetaly they lost their game in the afternoon 27-28). We had: scrambled eggs, bacon, (french)toast and maple sirop. After breakfast it was time to visit Priscilla (Elaine's and Marne's Motorhome). From Priscilla we went to Marne's quiltfriend Ronda. Ronda's husband Marc cooked us (Ronda, Jenny, Marne and me) a lovely lunch. Ronda showed and told us all about her quilts, she has made several quilts, and has some very interesting quilts from the 1930's. One of them is from her grandmother. For her daughters 18th birthday she made a very special quilt. It took her year to pick the right fabrics, because every square in the quilt presents something from her daughters childhood. I left with some very nice fabrics, and a whole box of quiltmagazines she collected for me. I think I'll need a second suitcase.Thank you all for another lovely day in Seattle.
