  1. getting close to Skykomish video of us passing through Skykomish, WA After Sky, the sun set and the thick trees made it really dark and hard to take landscape shots. I took this time to relax and reflect on the week. Final station stop before Wenatchee. It was 9pm when we got to Wenatchee. I was tired and too dark to take pictures. I hope you all have enjoyed my journey on the Bliss. I am still working on my vlogs. Now that I have finished my review I can focus on those. I will post them as replies onto this review so you can see them. Please feel free to ask questions! With love! Matthew

  7. I caught an uber down the waterfront, as I had all my bags, to get lunch. Ivar's was the place. fish and chips with chowder! yummy! I saved a couple fries for the Seagulls! After eating, I watched the Washington State Ferries arrive at the Ferry dock. They are completely replacing the ferry dock in downtown Seattle. Too many rotting pilings to be safe in an earthquake. The ferry a bit later heading away from Seattle. Argrosy Cruise boat Seagull looking for a snack
