A Visit to Chihuly Garden and Glass in Seattle, Washington

What a magical place Chihuly Garden and Glass is. This was the highlight of our visit to Seattle, Washington and definitely rates on our "things not to miss" when in the city. The colors of the glass are just so vivid and the way that the pieces are displayed are jaw-dropping beautiful.



Inside the exhibition hall, you enter a world of spectacular colors. Large orbs of glass dot the bases of many displays while slender shafts rise towards the ceilings.

Massive towers of glass tentacles look so fragile as they grow from their earth-bound platforms.

In some places delicate chandeliers hang from above while in others plates of glass create a colorful ceiling for you to walk under.

Outside in the garden you will find more glass sculptures mixed in with the beautiful gardens.

Since the Chihuly Garden and Glass is located in the shadows of the Space Needle, one fun thing to try and photograph is the reflection of the Space Needle in the glass balls of the garden.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.


Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
