Alderbrook

We've been away again for a work related conference in Washington.



Sitting here for a while, even in the misty rain seemed to make my stress go away.


I just can't get over how green it is here!



Washington...the Evergreen State.



Sitting here, being quiet, only thinking about the patterns the rain was making in the pond.




Oh, and I made a couple of friends that kept me company while I was missing my cats. 

Meet... 

"ALDER"


 and...

"BROOK"


Neither Alder nor Brook were bothered by people in the, I mean "their" hotel lobby.   They both had  favorite "spots" where they like to chill out, and were even happier if you wanted to pet them and pay attention to them.

Hum, I'm thinking I could relax too if I lived at the Alderbrook Resort.


I'll be back to Las Vegas in a few days...
Only a few more weeks left now, before we pack up our things and move up here to the Pacific Northwest.

Hope all is well with you.

Becca

Hi Becca! Looks like a very nice place for a conference; we've only driven past it. One of these days you need to check out Eastern Washington if you haven't already~it's quite different....

What a pretty place! Love that fluffy cat, she looks like a pillow!

Just gorgeous, and Alder and Brook are too, though I have to say Brook steals the show! xox

I'm glad you enjoyed your time in Washington - I live near Seattle and it's been extraordinarily damp recently - but that's why it's so green. Great photos - come back and visit in August or September; it won't be so wet but it'll still be green!

Such a peaceful post.
So perfect since I just ended a hectic day to say the least. :-(
Love Brock and Alder!

What atmospheric images as always. And I love your new furriends :) They seem to be very happy with their purpose in life!
Hugs from Joan
P.s. I've just launched a big auction on my blog with all my own handmade items. It's in support of one of my strays who's just had major expensive dental surgery. I'd love it if you have a moment to stop by.

Such wonderful photos. It look so peaceful. I just love the Adirondack's out by the water.. I can just imagine sitting there in the summer reading a book. Those kitties are so cute. Your kitties are going to be so happy to see you!

Hugs~

Wow ~ talk about all the comfort of home ~ including the kitties! Haha! What a wonderful place you stayed at Becca. I am thinking a lot of relaxing can get done there. Beautiful!

Tracy said...

So much lush green...*sigh*... and think, you'll be moving to where there's so much green...and rain, soon! ;o) LOVELY photos... And don't you just love when you meet kitties while away. We're just back from being away too. Vienna was AMAZING and more! So lovely to catch up with you.((HUGS))

how wonderful that you are finally moving out of the desert... I am so happy for you... cannot wait to hear about your move!

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

It's gorgeous there... just as green as it is here in Virginia.... You will need to buy a raincoat or two or three though... LOL You know, to make a fashion statement!

It looks like a great place to unwind. Now I'm becoming envious and need to start planning a getaway. You captured everything beautifully.
