Seattle Art Museum

So eons ago The Man and I made it into Seattle to go to the Seattle Art Museum.  We had been wanting to go and I was determined that we would go while we had free admission (Active duty military and dependents had free admission to hundreds of museums this summer; that's how long ago we went!)  We both enjoy looking at art and going to an art museum is on my 101 in 1001 list, so that was another incentive to go.

I have to say that I love taking the ferry to Seattle.  I know that has nothing to do with the art museum...but really, taking the ferry is the best. We usually get some soup for the ride over; Ivar's clam chowder for The Man and chicken noodle or chili  for me, depending on what they have. We're creatures of habit and we love our soup.  I also keep an eye out for some Orca. It's not unheard of to see them from the ferry and I really, really, REALLY want to see some Orca.  I refuse to leave WA until I see some. It's a good thing we're not planning on moving anytime soon!  I've never seen orca but it is common to see some seals (or seal lions...not sure which one) hanging out around the buoys.  They're really cute!

So, on to the Seattle Art Museum.  We enjoyed the feature exhibit and sadly we weren't allowed to take any pictures.  We really enjoyed the exhibit of paintings of American landscapes.  I'm usually drawn to ones of either coast and the ones they had did not disappoint.  I could just stare and enjoy for hours. Thankfully I had The Man with me to keep me from doing that!  They also had logging photos from the early 1900's.  Those were pretty awesome too.

We didn't explore too much else as we under a time crunch.  We really wanted to see the last Harry Potter film at the IMAX in 3D so we headed over to the Pacific Science Museum so w could do that. It was awesome though I didn't think the3D added too much.  I'll be just fine seeing it on my plain old TV when we get it on DVD!

Anyway, I did manage to take a few photos at the museum....

How about wearing this to a military ball?

I wonder what Ig would do with this mouse?

I really like the colors and pattern.


  1. Looks like so much fun, I love museums. I think I would probably love the ferry ride most though. :)

  2. This post makes me long for the PNW!!! The ferry, Ivars, and of course the art. I heart the Seattle Art Museum.... and I think I've told you this before but you MUST check out Tacoma Art Museum sometime {third thursday of the month is always free and extended hours too if that helps ;-) }
