Apr 3, 2018 - Private Retirement Party on March 31, 2018

Last Saturday my son Eric together with my niece Xiang Xiang and cousin Xiaodong hosted a wonderful retirement party for me at an Italian restaurant called Magianno's in Bellevue of Wa. A total of 38 people attended including many friends that I have not seen for years. My Ph.D. advisor at the University of Washington, Prof. Ishimaru and his wife, came who are in the 90th! My UW officemate Shira and her husband John also came from Pullman of WA. It was a great get-together to reflect the path I have taken and close the ultrasound engineer...

Jun 7, 2012 - Bellevue, WA

FYI: You may have noticed we changed our map on the homepage, to show SW Canada and SE Alaska, our next destinations. You can select which map YOU want to see, by clicking on the list of maps below the map image on the homepage. As we left Mt. Rainier to head north, the GPS took us back through the park and we were able to get a look at the result of the recent snowfall. It was a misty, white scene as we drove along the mountainside park road, and although it looked frozen outside, it was only about 55 degrees. It was a treat to be able...

Aug 10, 2010 - Bellevue WA - Seattle

After I dropped my daughter Christine at the airport in Vancouver, BC, I loaded up my trailer and crossed the border to Washington, driving by Seattle to stay east in Bellevue. The Trailer Inns RV Park is located on 90 just east of the 405 so getting around the Seattle area was a breeze, at least as long as I wasn't traveling during the rush hour peaks. I picked up my girlfriend at the airport an hour after I checked into the RV park. The next three days were packed with sightseeing museums, the space needle, Olympia national park, Pikes...

Jun 24, 2010 - Arrival at the west coast

Very nice trip to finish off the cross country trip. Karen still slept half the way but I did wake her for some of the very pretty views and occasionally she did stay awake while I was snaking in and out of the semi's on the road. Stopped at a very nice waterfall in WA for a break. At my cousin Erik's for a grilled Salmon supper. Nice conversation with him and his three girls and of course, the hedgehog. Off to the ferry tomorrow in Bellingham to head north. I can't wait to see the water side going up!

Oct 10, 2009 - Seattle: les parcs

Petite journée tranquille qui nous a permis de parcourir quelques « states parks » de la ville pour y faire des randonnées au soleil automnal. En pleine ville de Seattle, on retrouve d’immenses fossés aménagés en parc où les habitants se promènent, des cours d’eau pour le canot et le kayak ainsi que des champs pour la cueillette de bleuets. Tout cela entre deux autoroutes bruyantes qu’il est facile d’oublier tant ces zones de nature sont bien intégrées. Les arbres y sont immenses (pins Douglas) et la saison est encore chaude ici. Nous...

Oct 9, 2009 - Seattle WA: grosse ville

Nous sommes installés à un petit terrain de camping à Bellevue, à 10 km de Seattle (Vasa RV park). Nous y sommes très bien, sur les bords du lac Sammamish. D’ailleurs, Seattle et ses alentours regorgent de lacs, de rivières, de baies et de ruisseaux, tellement qu’on dirait la ville construite sur l’eau. Et en plus, la verdure et les arbres immenses sont partout, on ne voit presque pas les maisons. Pourtant, c’est une très grosse ville, avec des industries réputées comme Boeing et Microsoft qui occupent la majorité des travailleurs. Une...

Oct 8, 2009 - Bellevue WA: pas loin de Seattle

Nous repartons ce matin vers Bellevue, à 10 milles de Seattle, où nous comptons nous installer pour faire du tourisme quelques jours (il reste 250 mi. à faire). Les plaines du nord-ouest de Washington sont à perte de vue mais le paysage n’est pas monotone. Il y a tellement de sortes de cultures, de bebelles agricoles qu’on se demande à quoi cela sert, de camions chargés de différents légumes et fruits (ex : des carottes de la grosseur d’un maïs), on a toujours de quoi s’étonner. Après la traversée de la Columbia River, les montagnes...

Nov 5, 2008 - To Snoqualmie Falls & Bellevue, Wa

Wednesday, November 5, 2008 – Taking the computer for repairs. It rained off and on most of the night, but has stopped this morning. The weather reports are for sunshine and clearing skies, so I may go sightseeing today. After a bite to eat and playing with Zack, I gave him a shower and boy did he need it. The area he plays in is an overflow basin and has collected a couple of inches of water, so he is running through that and then collecting mud and sand in his feet and coat. I know he enjoyed it and was happy to be clean, not to...

Aug 1, 2008 - Seattle / Bellevue

Arrive here yesterday after what was intended as a short (40 minute) drive from Gig Harbor. However the Navy's Blue Angel's had a different plan. It's Seafare time in Seattle ... this is a weekend of fun an frolic on the water, including Hydroplane races and ..... an aerial display by the famed Blue Angel's. Of course they need a littl practise for their low altitude runs, soo the main crossing over Lake Washington into Seattle (the floating bridge on Int. 90) was closed yesterday from 12:00 noon to 2:00 pm. Since this is one of only two...

May 21, 2008 - Portland and Seattle

Hey people, We drove today. It was raining so I spent the day doing math homework while mom and dad tried to fix the satellite. Even though it has this new bubble cover the rain still makes it fritz out. I did two or three lessons in algebra 2 today so that I could get up to lesson forty. Every 10 lessons earns me more books. I finished the last of my books today during the drive so I am really, really bored. We are now staying in this really small campground called Trailer Inns. It is basically a parking lot with electrical, water, and...

May 11, 2008 - Bellevue, WA

On Mother’s Day we left Oregon behind and settled in Seattle for the next week (we were amused by Washington’s litter campaign: If you litter, it will hurt. Not nearly as catchy as Don’t Mess with Texas!). The weather was, what else, wet and cold. But the forecast was encouraging, with 70s and 80s and SUNSHINE predicted for later in the week. We settled into our campsite, which was really more like a large parking lot (seriously, I am not kidding – there are four trucks parked in the space next to us). We had picked this campground only...

Aug 21, 2007 - Bellevue, WA

We stopped in Bellevue to meet a lady that is working for Joe. We had dinner with her and her son. She was lovely, unfortunately my kids were terrible at the restaurant. Nicole spent the entire time climbing on her chair, under the table, in the isle...oh my. And JT chocked on a crayon, squirmed and screamed the whole time. I guess we pushed them a little too hard that day. We stayed at the ugliest RV park yet and got out of there as quickly as possible.
