Hi Dave,wyerd wrote: So you're just down the road from me?! Just 2800 odd miles! Whereabouts in WA are you? I was there back in 2011 in Seattle and I was very lucky to go to Everett and have a tour of the Boeing factory. It's an amazing place.
We flew into Seattle and spent a couple of nights there.
Yesterday was a trip to the Boeing factory - as you said, pretty impressive! The only slight disappointment was not being able to take photos, but it was well worth visiting.
Today, it's the wine (and beer) country. Here for another couple of nights, then Vancouver, Victoria and back to Seattle for a few more nights.
I need to have an afternoon nap now. We've just been on a brewery tour, but it was really just an excuse to drink beer for an hour or so at an alarmng, if acceptable, pace. The mistake I made was having a couple of pints at lunch beforehand! The "tour" consisted of a few brief glimpses of various parts of the process, with most time spent "sampling" (in ample quantities) the produce - hic !
Dave (or at least, I think that's my name!)
