As many of you know my husband has been in India for the past 11 days. I was fortunate enough to have my mom come visit from Ohio during his leave. We don’t get to see each other very often so this was some special mother daughter time.
We started our visit with a weekend trip to the family cabin on Lake Wenatchee. It was a great time to relax and enjoy some of the fall landscape as leaves were changing and the sun was shining. We headed into Leavenworth to check out this quaint Bavarian village and found ourselves in the midst of Oktoberfest. Good times!
Monday was an errand day and Tuesday we headed into Seattle to enjoy some of the things the city has to offer. She has been here several times before so we didn’t need to do the special touristy stuff, but did check out some shopping, the waterfront and Pike Place Market.
Wednesday we caught the Victoria Clipper and made our way up to Victoria, BC to enjoy the Butchart Gardens and high tea at The Empress. We couldn’t have been blessed with better weather for this fall visit (Thanks God!). Here is the photo highlight.

Thanks for a very nice visit Mom!
