Public Market

I spent a few days in the great Pacific Northwest last week because my lovely niece, Heather, graduated from high school and my awesome nephew, Philip, graduated from 8th grade. Lots of parties!

Congrats Grad!

We also got some sight-seeing in and went to the Pacific Science Center to see the Tutankhamun and the Great Pharaohs exhibit from Cairo. WOW.

Death Mask: Psusennes I

I used to want to be an Egyptologist and then I realized most of the fancy gold stuff had been found already and what was left was a lot of digging for rocks in the desert, so I changed that plan. I am still fascinated by the history and as always…I love looking at old things that were here long before I was and will be around for longer than I can imagine.

Canopic Container - King Tut Exhibit
This is where they kept Tut’s stomach when they embalmed him!

Pike Place Market

No trip to Seattle is complete without a visit to Pike Place Market. It’s really one of the few places where honey, jam, fish, and fruit can hold my attention for an extended period of time…everything here is fresh picked and caught and it’s a fun energy.

Now it’s back in hot Austin but thankfully…there’s rain a’comin’!
