Welcome! "Stamps in My Passport" is a true travel blog, a journal in which I can quickly capture details and reactions when I'm on the road. Articles and images for travel markets will flow from this travelog when I get back home.
If you stumble upon "Stamps", I hope you derive as much pleasure reading it as I had from posting the unedited stories of my travels, as well as occasional tips and links to my published articles ....
STAMP: "SIX HOURS IN SEATTLE" IS POSTED ON TRAVELLADY.COM
(c) Julie H. Ferguson 2011
Six hours to see Seattle.... I crack one eye and the pearly dawn frames the drapes in my hotel room. I crack the other eye. Only eight hours before my cruise ship sails!
I whisk the drapes back and the sunrise tips the hi-rises of downtown Seattle with crimson. The streets are deeply shadowed still and the sun has yet to color the wine-dark waters of Puget Sound with cobalt and gold. To the north the snow-capped Olympic Mountains of Washington State have a rosy glow.
My article about my six hours in Seattle (May) is now posted at The Travel Lady site here.
