Post my traditional baby shower,
Friday morning, I woke up, got ready, had my breakfast, right in time to roam around Seattle downtown with my family. They got ready and came over to pick me up. We drove to Pike’s market place. Parked the car there. Walked down to the waterfront, then along the market closer to the waterfront, along the pier coast. Walked to pier 52, that had ferries to two islands- Bainbridge and Bremerton. We chose Bainbridge island. Booked tickets for the ferry. Waited 30 mins for the next ferry. Reached the island, walked around- visited 2 museums – art and history. Every hour there was a return ferry. Rushed for the next ferry an hour later. Caught it just in time. Ferry ride and views from the ferry were amazing. It was windy. The ride was 35 mins each way.
Then we halted for lunch. Then walked up to the monorail station, took the train to Seattle space center. Walked around a little. Clicked pictures and then got back to the car. Drove back home. On the way back had dinner.
Saturday the hubby was home. We planned for Boeing factory tour with all! The bigger group- 8 of us! It was a rainy and cloudy day. Boeing factory tour was highly secure place- no pictures inside the plant. A huge factory, celebrating its 100th anniversary year. We enjoyed learning how planes were made and the different types of planes.
Evening didn’t have much plans- my friends pinged me about a festival (Bathukamma) happening in a school nearby. My mom, sisters and myself joined them. Then dad said we could go to any temple nearby. On the return we stopped directly at temple. Hubby, aunty, uncle, and dad came over in the other car. It was Navarathiri time, and there were special poojas happening in the temple.
Sunday, we went to the Snoqualmie falls, I waited for morning for weather report to say it was a good day. My parents, sisters and me went over. The flow was high this time. Water from the falls poured like rainfall over us. On the return, stopped by another temple close by home.
Evening my parents and me started to Canada, leaving behind sisters, as they were flying out that night back home- Chicago, IL and from there my sister heading home by train to a city in Indiana.
