We wrapped up our first full day in Seattle with a delightful boat ride (do you call a 54 foot yacht a boat?) on Lake Washington, courtesy of Rob Harris and his buddy Rich. Rob is a friend and business associate of Roger and Clyde and owns a little company called Pacific Market International (they make Stanley and Alladin containers).
Rob gave us a look at Bill Gates’ lovely home (“Wave to the security man with the binoculars.”) and the houseboat where Sleepless in Seattle was filmed. The Seattle skyline at sunset was gorgeous…the weather was perfect…and Rob and Rich could not have been nicer. Not hard to see why people who live here love it so.
