My extremely fast Seattle weekend visit still yielded lots of interesting experiences, but the disasters on returning home have prevented me from expounding on them until now.
Not only does West Seattle have the lovely Westwood Village mall with major chains, it also has The Junction with a year-round Farmers' Market and lots of interesting shops and food places.
The Junction is the West Seattle downtown and has many fascinating aspects. I forgot to bring my camera and so could not document everything.
Back at home, I contrasted two pairs of fingerless gloves that I bought. One was a very nice purple pair from Edie's for $32 and another was a $1.50 pair of sparkly aqua fingerless gloves from Daiso, the ultimate dollar store in the Northwest.
We also visited the Frye Museum for the exhibit entitled "The Old, Weird America" and got some souvenirs from the gift shop.
As much as I felt trepidation about going on this trip, I must say it was very expansive in terms of my worldview and worth all the trouble.
