The preceding picture shows not the more famous DC-3, but that airplane’s similar looking predecessor, the DC-2. I earlier joked on Facebook that I would be returning to Saint Louis on it. This example is the only still flying aircraft of this 1937 model. It can be found at the Museum of Flight at Boeing Field. The following photo, showing the 737-700’s winglet is what I really returned home on. It feels good to be home again and it feels even better to hug Anne once more.
It was a fun trip. The work was a welcomed diversion from my normal day-to-day fare. The fine dining that I enjoyed with my travel partners was a welcomed treat. I’m sure that I have regained all of the weight that I managed to lose on the previous week’s Michigan bicycle trip. The best part of this Seattle visit was the time that I spent with Jay and Carl. I want to thank them both publicly and properly, for the lovely hospitality that they showed me.
Last night, I met Jay and Carl for dinner, one last time. Last night I also got my first foul taste of Seattle’s traffic, it was awful last night. We went to a Greek restaurant within walking distance of Seattle Center and the Space Needle. After dinner we walked around these landmarks. It was a nice way to finish off this trip.
