Washington Park Arboretum

Before I proceed to give an account of the rest of our Seattle trip, I'd like to take this moment to thank the blue dot of the maps feature on my iphone, without whose help we would still be going in circles around this city. Even though we took many detours and had to drive miles to get back on track, the blue dot has guided us in the right direction a lot of the time. Not being used to the highway/exit/intersection mentality of Americans, I've struggled so much on this trip to be a good co-pilot and steer my husband in the right direction. Driving here a lot of stress, and I don't know how people do it.
To get back to our subject, we reached the Washington Park Arboretum after a pretty drive along the water. The beauty of the houses that face the water are beyond description. People were running along the shore, walking with their strollers, or just hanging out enjoying the sun. The spring blossoms were so beautiful that we had to stop and take pictures in front of strangers' houses. I was embarrassed, a little, but then we did the same thing with my family so many times. We just love nature. And I'm very lucky to have a husband that loves nature as much as I do.
The arboretum was just so spectacular. Imagine looking around and seeing only green grass, spring blossoms, ducks swimming around in ponds, and trees. And hearing only the birds chirping away. See, words do not do justice to the beauty, serenity, and happiness of that place. I will have to move on and talk about a shopping district or something, as that is something I am capable of doing. In fact we loved it so much at the arboretum that tomorrow we will go running there.
Check out these VRs that give 360-degree views of the place: Glen at Springtime, Springtime on Azalea Way, Woodland Garden & Pond. And more at vrseattle.com.

You have clicked the blooming flowers with the right amount of light; it gives them a new meaning...

iPhone was launched in India last year; still very astronmically high priced...

My close friend was in Seattle a year back, he fell in love with the place...

Long time no talk!

iphone still isn't too cheap here too, but it's so much more than a phone that i feel it's worth it.

Seattle is wonderful. I have so much more to write about it, and many more pictures, i just don't have the time!

Yes I know I have not been catching up; will keep in touch...

I had travelled to New Delhi for a friend's wedding and was in the middle of moving out from my current residence to a new apartment. This
moving process is a bitter-sweet experience; I am sure you agree with me on that...

Hoping to see more pictures from Seattle on your blog...

Take care...
