Bellevue continued

Filed under: Uncategorized — dracil @ 8:42 pm

I probably didn’t really need two jackets, since I haven’t been standing/sitting around outside doing nothing, and insides are temperature controlled anyway.

I’m surprised, I didn’t fall asleep! Which I tend to do in stuff like this. I still woke up sometime around 5 again today, though it wasn’t like yesterday so overall I’m feeling better.

That said, Bellevue is kinda bleh as far as things to do. Only thing nearby is a park. The rain also kinda sucks. So far, I don’t see this as a place I’d want to move to.

Also, the hotel is a bit annoying in that a lot of stuff wasn’t plugged in when I came here, like the internet, or stuff just falling out of the power outlets.

Note to self: Bring bread next time I want to get some nice shots of birds.

  1. Oh contrar Dracil – there is plenty to do here in Bellevue. While the park is a great feature, there is also plenty of dining and shopping, or you could go bowling, to the movies, see comedy, listen to live music, go the the art museum and many many other choices. Skiing is only about 30 minutes away in the winter and the lake is great during the summers. I hope that you get to explore Bellevue a bit more.

    I do agree with you about the weather – the rain does get old, but I take Vitamin D to help cope and try to get somewhere warm and sunny as often as possible.

  2. Dining is great, but I only got to eat out once this time. Shopping/bowling/movies/art museums tend to be about the same no matter which city you’re in.

    I guess I’m just more interested in landmarks or stuff that’s unique to only one location. :P San Francisco has the Golden Gate Bridge, Coit Tower, etc. New York has the Statue of Liberty, Broadway.

    Though I’ll be back in Washington in a few months and maybe I’ll get a chance to explore more next time.

  3. You are probably right – no national landmarks, but I doubt you’ve ever been in a billiards parlor like The Parlor, a bowling alley like Lucky Strike or seen an indoor water feature like in Lincoln Square – there simply aren’t any.

    Please do give it a shot – as well as many of the great local restaurants you won’t find anywhere else.

    Thanks for visiting!
