Thank God for a great and final day in Seattle, Washington Sept 5-6, 2014 (pics galore redux)

So I decided to post the two last days here in my Northwest trip; both Sept 5 and 6. More emphasis on the 5th of course since my last day was only half a day.

So this time we weren't in that much of a hurry to get back to Seattle. Because due to morning traffic, we held off driving to Seattle until 9:00AM from Portland, Oregon. Darn, Portland had very good weather at this time. Hallelujah!

First off, Breakfast at Panera bread! The pics shall fill you in.

Forgot what this was but the apple one was mines.
So we headed to our road trip back to Seattle. 3 hour drive here we come.... ugh! My sister wanted seafood, so we stop by Alki point when we arrived in Seattle roughly a little after 12PM. You get a nice view of the harbor and the city of Seattle from a distance.

Thank God for a great day in Portland, Oregon (PDX) Sept 4, 2014 (pics galore redux)

Another beautiful day in Sea.... err..... so we woke up about 5AM in the morning of Sept 4, 2014 because we had a rendezvous with destiny in Portland, Oregon. So that means.... ROAD TRIP! So from 6AM to 9:30AM, we had loads of pit stops, driver switches, and naps in between. Thank God we weren't really hungry so we stopped off first in Portland's International Rose Garden. Then again, Extended Stay America had free coffee and breakfast so that was good enough. I took enough Nutri-grain bars and muffins to satisfy me.The sad thing about the Rose Garden now is that you have to pay for parking, which used to be free when I was here back in 2010. I guess the city is losing money. I remember a lot of locals would come here to play, shoot archery and rifles, and walk their dogs. Lots of empty parking spaces because nobody wants to pay. Once again, photos for your viewing pleasure....
