I arrived outside of Seattle to meet my childhood friend. We hadn’t seen each other for quite awhile, however our families still keep in contact via Christmas letters and, now, Facebook.
Problem is, you can’t squeal very well over the internet.
And poor A just wasn’t used to it.
Her first taste was on the way home, through this tree-lined street.
Can it get better than this??
And then I squealed over breakfast. French toast with fruit and yogurt.
Uh, hello A. I’m moving in.
Later I paused to take a nerdy photo in the farmers market.
But it didn’t take too long before I squealed over a collection of the world’s largest shoes. It cost 50 cents.
And was well worth it.
The next day we stayed around her neighborhood and ran by the water.
I stopped a few times to “tie my shoelace.”
And ended the visit with a tea room lunch. You know, I had never been to one before? Loved it.
A wouldn’t wear a hat. Hey, I can’t bully around everyone.
But I’ll try.
I had such a great time and cannot believe it took this long to catch up again with an old friend.
