If you ever visit Seattle, don't miss this!

We were in Seattle last weekend, and this was one of the highlights of our trip! We learned so much about the city, and we got to see alot of neat sights! Our guide was very entertaining and knowlegeable!

The duck is a vehicle like the ones they used in WWII at the beaches of Normandy. They are cars that actually go in the water and have a motor that will allow it to become a boat. On land you wouldn't think it could go very fast, but it can really go!

One thing about will never have to search for a Starbucks...I can not believe how many there are--and how close together they are. They have like 3 on one block! I don't see how so many outlets can be profitable in one city. Guess that's why they were able to franchise out, because they are supported by the city of Seattle! I must say that I didn't have Starbucks while we were there. It was just too hot and humid. All I had was bottled water!

But overall, I really enjoyed the city. It is alive, and the people are great! If you are looking for a great vacation spot, Seattle is a good choice!

3. This is the place for the real story on celebrities. Don't know how he knows where to go to, but he always has the news. He's very entertaining!
4. This is a gal that moved from Texas to Montana. She lives in the country, and her photography is wonderful! Some of her put together creatures are strange, but it's fun!

6. This is a blog about my hometown. David tries to keep us up to date on the happenings in town. Stop by and find out what is great about Great Falls!

12. I ready Karyn's 1st book. It was very entertaining. I found Leigh Ann through Karyn's blog, so keep reading Karyn's blog whenever she updates.
13. This is another entertainment blog. It's got a 'sister' site called Gawker that is a little crude with the language at times, but still has fun articles.

So, that is my 13. I might make this a weekly thing, but don't count on it! See ya' bestbuddie!
