Views From the Window

We took a drive across the bridge yesterday. It was for my first fundraiser banquet (where I wasn't a volunteer, but actually an attendee). Jon's company sponsored a table for a non-profit called Water for People, raising money for safe and sustainable water systems in developing countries. Last night's specific fundraiser was for their project in Malawi.

As you can see, it wasn't very nice out. But the sky was dramatic. I love how in the top and bottom pictures, it looks like I'm in the middle of nowhere. We have such a neat bridge connecting Seattle to Bellevue. It's like one skinny road across a huge lake. I used to be driven across it 3-4 times a week and each time I would be in awe of my surroundings. Cities in the distance, mountains beyond that; islands, land masses, trees, the mood of the sky, and lots and lots of water. For the few minutes it takes to cross that bridge, I always loose myself.

Thanks everyone for visiting on Five Senses Friday! It was fun to meet new people!
