While staying in Astoria, one of our phone charger cords got stuck in the back of the couch arm. Thought we were going to have to just cut it off and leave the other piece in there, it was really jammed tight. Instead, I kept trying to figure it out, and when I got the flashlight down in there I could see the bedframe. Wow!
Got the cord finally, and that night we figured out the bed as well. With a full size inflatable mattress and built-in blower/sucker it looked not only comfortable but easy to set up.
Jeff was our first test subject and gave the bed high marks. I continue to look for other hidden treasures.....
Following a yummy breakfast of pancakes and homemade peach compote we all loaded in the Jeep to take Jeff back to the city.
On the way we stopped at Flaming Geyser State Park. Because who wouldn't want to see that?!
|Not what we envisioned|
Okay, it's a very pretty park along the Green River, and the history is somewhat interesting except that I don't remember anything except man-made and methane. After all we've seen so far I was disappointed that this is what we got to share with Jeff :-(
He did enjoy being out of the city and spending some time at the river in the forest.
|Couldn't decide if it was training camp or a spa|

|Bill and Jeff|
Back in the city we headed to the Capitol Hill area where Jeff works. With the recent "relocation" of the homeless from more affluent areas, the park and streets are sad reminders that protecting the environment is not our only battle in this country.
We enjoyed a delicious lunch at 8oz Burger where I actually did have a burger - so good I never paused for a photo of the food!
|They offer more than burgers at 8oz Burger|
|One of only a few Starbucks in Seattle........|
|Love the reused fluorescent tubes as light shades|
|I swear there were other people there when I took this|
I really like this area southeast of the city, which is a good thing as we moved less than 30 miles to our next stop where we'll stay put for a couple weeks.
|So great to spend time with this guy|
