Trip to the West Coast

On Thursday, February 28th, I left headed for Seattle to visit Roger while he is away at C40 training for the military. While I was up there, we took an underground tour of the city, visited Pikes Place Market and watched the vendors throw around fish, went out to eat a few trendy establishments, and of course, went up in the space needle.
Cool shot from the top of the space needle:

As I was in Seattle, St. Louis was getting hit hard with a snow storm and I decided to stay the whole week rather than fight the crowds trying to travel on a reduced flight schedule. The following weekend, we flew down to Santa Barbara to attend the wedding of one Roger's college roommates and friends.
Roger and I at the rehearsal dinner at a restaurant called Opal off of State Street in Santa Barbara.

The ceremony and reception were held at the Fess Parker Doubletree Resort - the ceremony was in the rose garden and the reception was in a tented area just off the lobbby.

Menu - we had our choice of filet or Maine lobster! Yum!
And the cake!
