Seattle Museum of Flight and Chihuly Bridge of Glass

One day adaption to jetlag is enough ;-) Therefore we left Seattle and headed to Bremerton for the night. But how to spend the day? Well, there is the Museum of Flight, which I discovered on an earlier trip to WA. And searching the Internet, I found the Chihuly Bridge of Glass in Tacoma.


Our first full vacation day was more or less for relaxing, and recovering, and getting rid of the jetlag. Therefore we stayed right in Seattle. Our plan was to walk down to the Great Wheel and to the Aquarium, what we more or less managed to do - with some detours.

After a late breakfast in the hotel, we headed out towards the Great Wheel at the waterfront. For sure, the first group of Ingress portals, and the first mission we played, got us right to the Seattle Public Library.

Geocaching HQ

After figuring out that our vacation will bring us to Seattle, I checked the Geocaching map for potential caches in the area of our hotel. Sure enough, some nice virtual caches and regular caches popped up, but also one named “Geocaching HQ” - wait, what?

So far I wasn’t aware that the HQ was in Seattle, but learned something new that day. The HQ cache also showed opening times for visitors. That’s where we had to change our plans for that day, because they only open one hour in the afternoon, and this greatly overlapped with our other plans. Well then, let’s go there first, find some nice caches and travel bugs, and then go to the hotel. Oh, and hope that the plane does not arrive too late, and that immigration will not take too long.
