The Definitive 2007-2008 Catalog of Western United States Potties

So, I've figured it out. Remi is feverishly working on the definitive 2007-2008 Catalog of Western United States potties. I believe that we entered every bathroom at the ferry station, the aquarium, the marketplace, the restaurant, and basically everywhere else we visited today. Kristi and I really are happy to have the boy toilet-trained; now I just wish that his bladder was a little larger than a thimble.

Okay, enough potty humor.

We actually had a lovely trip to Seattle today by ferry. Although we forgot our camera (again), I think that the experience will remain memorable for a long time. The trip from Port Orchard to Seattle takes two ferries; one to Brewerton and then another to Seattle. Had I the camera, I would have taken a picture of the incredibly massive wake that the Brewerton-Seattle ferry leaves behind it. It was awesome. When we got off the ferry for the first time, I would have taken a picture of the largest hammer drill in the universe (of Josh) which was pushing a formidable-looking I-beam into the ocean.

We first stopped at a few gift shops, and then we went to the Seattle Aquarium, where we undoubtedly would have taken numerous pictures of the boy's petting starfish, sea slugs, anemonae, and urchins, touching shark skin and shark teeth and staring in awe jellyfish, otters, seals, sharks, etc., etc., etc.. However, we didn't bring the camera, and so we didn't take pictures of any of that.

We went to the marketplace where there were these enormous bouquets of flowers for only $10! Of course, this would be more valuable, had I a picture to show you the size and beauty of the bouquets. We didn't bring our camera, though.

Finally, we went to dinner at Ivar's where we had some really good seafood. I had the cod. Our waitress, Lee, was a gem. Afterwards, we took some of Remi's left-over fries and fed them to eager-looking seagulls. That would have been great to have on camera, too. Grrrr...

Hopefully, if I write "we forgot our camera" enough times, I will eventually remember to bring the flippin' (Utah word) camera along with us!
