We had a great field trip today. We showed the breakfast club ladies how to ride the light rail into downtown. We got off at Westlake Center and exited into Nordstroms. There we "shopped" for handbags, enjoying the hundreds and even thousands one can spend on a "purse". As we worked our way to the upper floors, we contemplated the fashions as they might look on "mature, full figured" women. Not so good. We crossed over the sky bridge to Pacific Place and explored several levels. I had a chance to do a little serious shopping and crossed several items off of my list. We reached the top level in time for lunch at a brew pub. Tom had beer. We ladies did not. But brew pubs always have good food. Later we retraced out steps and actually went outside to cross the street to Westlake Center. We found some fun shops where we bought stocking stuffers and just enjoyed the merchandise. About 3:00 we were back on the train headed south. It was a fun and relaxing day. I have no photos because I purposely left my camera home. It felt freer to just participate and not record everything. Tomorrow, back to work.
