Farewell Seattle

Before our move, we took a trip downtown to meet a friend who works in the Columbia Tower, the tallest building west of the Mississippi.

The weather was cloudy in the morning so we were afraid the views wouldn't be that great, but the skies started to clear just as we got there. The observation deck is on the 75th floor and the views are amazing! It was still too cloudy to see Mount Rainier, but we had a good view of the city and the water.

 If you're ever visiting Seattle, take a trip here. The Space Needle is more tourist-friendly, but it costs much more and doesn't offer nearly the same view.

After we got back, we went down to the lake to ride the wave runner. This is one of Dave's all-time favorite things to do and we are really going to miss it!
