WootWoot! (or 'Oehoe' in Dutch I believe is what an owl says...) <wink>
Look at this beautiful bird of prey that we came across in the foggy lands of The Valley yesterday. So so pretty don't you think? He was just sitting on a fence since there wasn't much else to do in that dense fog.
When I left early in the morning for Seattle you could barely see a thing in front of you. By the time I got to Seattle there were beautiful blue skies everywhere, except for in the Valley, because when I returned just after 4 pm the fog seemed to be even thicker. Here some more pretty impressions of all the grey...
Anyway, I drove all the way to Seattle which was a first for me. I just really dislike merging onto a highway and try to avoid it as much as I can. The Dutch Lady lives in a beautiful, very modern house high up on a hill overlooking Lake Washington and the whole Cascades Range: absolutely stunning views!

The white line you see at the bottom of the mountains is all the fog in The Valley!

We had our coffee & tea (and some yummie chocolate brownies) on her roof terrace and enjoyed the spectacular views and the wonderful sunshine.
So all in all that was a very fun day already, but now I have to tell you our 'Big Hurray' news: Master C. received his first College Acceptance Letter yesterday! This arrived months earlier than we had expected so it was a big surprise. It was from the school that we visited earlier this spring and one that we all liked a lot so: Yahoo!
In total he will apply to 6 more schools and then in April he will have to decide which one he will pick, but at least this one's in the bag!!! (big smile}
