Day 2 of the tour

What a fun way to spend a holiday! The tour guide is the best I have ever had, so professional and funny. Most of the other 44 ladies and 1 man have travelled with her before: some 4 or 5 times. That is a great recommendation.
We had our get to know you meeting last night then set out this morning for Tacoma to visit the museum showcasing Dale Chihuly glass. Absolutely stunning. Just Google him to see his amazing work.
We then crossed the road to visit the Quilt Show. VERY inspiring - didn't buy any fabric though!
Had an amazing meal at the Cheesecake Shop - nothing like our cheesecake shops. Huge menu, huge size meals and fantastic cheesecake. Forgot to take a photo. Lovely company with four ladies from the Midwest. Early start tomorrow, need to be on the coach by 6.00 am for our ferry trip up to Canada. So looking forward to it.
Couple of photos. The book is especially for Cherilyn! The mountain is Mt Ranier. Photos do not do it justice, it is so beautiful with sun shining on the snow.


  1. Looks like you have been on a great tour and I enjoyed your photos. Such a sweet knitted dog.
    Many thanks for visiting me and enjoy the weekend


  2. I need to get the knitting instructions for a whippet! What a gorgeous idea.
    My ex father in law was a glass blower so I've heard of Dale Chihuly. He's so talented x

  3. How exciting to be on tour. I love holidays whereever they are.

  4. Sounds like a brilliant day. Love the look of Knitting your own dog
