When we stopped at a hotel the first night, Jack pulled out a VW van he'd made out of Lego and put it on the nightstand. He'd filled it with mini-figures, proxies for his friends. He said it was his way of taking them with us.
As we traveled, he pulled out the van to take pictures. Sometimes he even took all of his friends out so they could get a better view.
Here are some of the highlights:
|Arriving at the Space Needle|
|Catching the view of downtown Seattle from the Space Needle|
|Watching a tug boat navigating the locks between Puget Sound and Lake Union|
|Stretching legs at the Boeing Factory. So sad we couldn't take a camera inside.|
|Exploring the tulip fields near Mt. Vernon, WA|
|Exploring tidal pools in Sydney, BC|
|Navigating the stepping stones across a pond in Buschart Gardens|
|Enjoying the surprise inlet at the bottom of the Japanese garden (Buschart)|
|Hiking along the shore in Victoria, BC|
And a PS that we found entertaining: There are more old VW vans per capita driving around on Vancouver Island than I have ever seen in one place. Seriously, we must have crossed paths with 50 of them! Jack and his friends fit right in.
