By now all my Mennonite Girl Friends have posted their photos of our special day trip to visit Ellen in Seattle.
There is nothing new under the sun here but our blogs are our own places to record special memories so I'll post a few of my photos too.
We boarded the Amtrak in Bellingham and Bev joined me in a seat on the left side of the train so our view was the peaceful pastures and small towns we passed through.
Ellen and Judy planned our day trip and they could both take on a new career of special excursions for ladies of a certain age.
We missed Charlotte and Betty from Manitoba and Kathy who was feeling under the weather at home.
Ellen picked us up in a vehicle that was rented big enough to carry us all and it was lovely to relax and know she knew the way.
We enjoyed the sunshine and the short walks.
Ellen made reservations for us to visit the Queen Mary Tea House.
I felt like I had been transported to England for a proper visit to a Tea House.
There was no space unused.
We enjoyed a beautiful lunch together.
I loved this idea for using teapots.
After a visit to a beautiful mall...
we popped into Ellen's place for refreshment and a bit of time in her home.
At the end of the day...
I just counted my blessings for the gift of these friends in my life and for the way God has led us in the six years we have been...
Mennonite Girls Can Cook.
all for now..
