And here is the river cruise ship that docked at Richland one day:
On our return drive home, we stopped at the Selah rest area (outside Yakima) to get a view of Mt. Adams and Mt. Rainier.
And we stopped at the Indian John Hill rest area for a view of the Cascades.
Back home, I discovered that during my two-week absence, lots of stuff had grown and bloomed in the garden (including the weeds--I have lots of work to do to catch up).

This is the snapdragon I planted last Spring (and which bloomed last summer) -- it is supposed to be an annual. Guess the mild winter convinced it to be a perennial.
And this is how a retired person spends a warm, sunny weekday afternoon!
