Last month I was able to attend a professional meeting in Seattle. On an afternoon break I took a city bus into downtown. While riding on the bus I turned to the lady sitting next to me. We discovered that she, too, was from North Carolina and had moved from NC forty years ago. I asked her which stop would be best for me to see the city. She indicated the stop and I jumped off the bus and began a wonderful afternoon walking through the city. These are a couple of sketches from my sketchbook.
