We arrived at Bill and Sharon Campbell’s
house (John Kelly’s cousin’s)in Bellevue (just outside Seattle)on September 6
at 5:30 pm. We had a wonderful dinner, including homemade vegetable soup
(they’re vegetarians) and grilled chicken. They are such nice people and were
so hospitable. We also met their son, Brian, who works for a company called
Fueled Creative. He is a director and story creator for music videos. After
dinner, we were lucky enough to view some of his work. He is very talented.
Exhausted we went to bed in Suite 100 and 200 of their house. We woke up fairly
early so we could get started seeing the sights of Seattle, but not until after
buying a rubber part to hold the exhaust in place (it was hitting the ground).
After a quick fix, we drove through the University of Washington campus! What a
beautiful campus! Our next stop was Gas Works Park, which I had wanted to see
since I had learned about it in one of my classes. While Katrin and I went
through the Park Janis and Niko fixed the rear left window which would not go
back up anymore. After we had all seen the beautiful view of Seattle from the
park, we drove back to the Univerity and had lunch with Daphne and some of her
friends. From there ,we continued our sightseeing tour of Seattle. We drove to
Pioneers Square and took part in the underground tour (which was very
interesting and funny, thanks to our tour guide Rick) and to Pike Place Public
Market., where Niko, Katrin, and I took a quick walk around. While doing so, I
was invited to come up and kiss a fish, yes a real dead and smelly one. Glad to
entertain the crowd, I came up to the stand and gave the fish a little peck and
went on our way to La Conner, where my dad’s friend Harold Hansen lives. About
thirty miles away from La Conner, our car seemed to lose power. Being low on
gas, we drove into a gas station and the car began to shake a lot. I
immediately thought that gunk had built up in the fuel tank, an easy fix, just
buy some stuff and put in. So, we got that stuff to pour in, as well as a new
fuel filter. Driving cautiously, we finally made it to La Conner. But that was
not the problem. Something more serious was wrong with the car. But what? We
did not know. Harold’s friend Boggie prepared a quick meal for us. Afterwords,
Niko and Janis went to tinker with the car some more, while Katrin and I sat
with Harold and Boggie to watch a movie.
