I was at a conference in Seattle last week. It was held on Lake Washington. The weather was nice and the lake beautiful. The hotel was right on the water and there was a walking trail that followed the shoreline for quite a ways.
A park stood next to the hotel, which I wandered through a few times, and to top it all off, they had an Ivar’s right on the water. So, of course, I had to get some clam chowder while I was there. Delicious!
I’m not sure it was worth the 5-hour flight, but it was good.
