DAY -1 Seattle, Renton & Shoreline, Washington

Left home this morning and headed for Vancouver to make a quick stop before heading to Washington for the weekend. We met this interesting guy sitting outside of Starbucks before we took off. Now, I ask you....have you EVER seen anything like this??

Now, THAT'S a scooter!  hahaha.  He was on his way back to work up the street.....I forgot his name! This is the front view of his scooter.....:-)

I would have done without the skeleton and stuff, but you gotta's very....ummm...well...."head turning"!  Here's hopeing the poor guy NEVER has to tear it down to get inside.  All of the stickers where covered in wide, clear tape!

We stopped at one of our favorite places called Smokey Point Cycle Barn in Smokey Point, Washington.  Good golly, I'm loving that Morphus! SWEET!!  Everytime we go, we sit on it....haha.  250cc- twist and go! That's what Chris is sitting on below.  It's a bit short for him but fits me perfectly!  ahhhhhhh........:-).  Nice saddle too.....:-)

 I tried out a Yamaha Vstar 250cc too.  My feet were right on the floor.  Good riding position.  But the guy said he would sell to anyone out of the country.  Oh well.....They have them in Canada too.....FOR TWICE THE PRICE!....:-(.....

We stopped and had lunch at Johnny Corino's and I had my jalapeno telapia dish and Christo had Chicken Gorgonzola penne......Yum.  I forgot to take a picture...ha We were starving!  I had to waddle to the car....

Only on the West Coast!  I couldn't believe it that when I got to the West they actually have this kind of celebration.....It's like a throw back to the 60's or something! 

We made it into the city and the traffic was rediculous as usual........

Now for dinner from Domino's Pizza. ...Habernaro chicken wings and cheesy bread stick.  They are stuffed with Feta cheese and spinach.  My consolation is that the spinach is healthy...ha.  They didn't cut the bread, so we had to tear into it like cave people!  No flatware in our hotel room....:-(
