It’s been a long and crazy weekend. Before this weekend I hadn’t been to Seattle in several years. I don’t usually go anywhere besides Pullman and my hometown, Wenatchee. So it was nice to get out and about somewhere new- to say the least.
We took off after class on Friday and ALTHOUGH we didn’t leave until 3 there were still plenty of other people doing the same thing. Wenatchee is only 3 hours from Pullman so the 5+ hour road trip to Seattle was quite a long trek. When we got to Othello we saw a horrible car accident involving a semi and small truck. WHOEVER was in that small truck was taken in the ambulance- I hope he was ok. I got in a car accident last Thanksgiving break on the way home, so when I see them I always get so upset.
Seeing the windmills before Ellensburg was really neat! I had no idea they are that big and so many! (Like I said, I don’t get out much.) The girls in the car had a little chuckle because I was so amazed. For them the trip is common but it was an entertaining ride for me.
Seattle really is so pretty. It’s really amazing how different it is from my town. And ALTHOUGH I was extremely intimidated by the big city at first, I was able to take everything in. We rode a boat, or “water taxi”, on the Puget Sound that dropped us off near the stadium. I was ready for some Cougar football!
The whole place was a sea of crimson and grey. Of course there were a bunch of duck fans…but who cares about that? There were tailgaters everywhere! Every group of fans seemed to have the SAME THINGS: beer, food and lots of spirit. That’s one thing I love about being a Coug; the pride we have in our school is loud and proud.
Even though we didn’t come out with a W, the weekend was a win in my books. I’m glad I decided to go and take on the big city. It was a weekend of good fun, friends and as always, my Cougs.
