Seattle trip

  3. 3. Inside Our Cottage Upstairs you’ll find a master-suite with full size bathroom and a second bedroom in the loft as you come up the stairs. Downstairs is a kitchen, a washroom, and a living room with an Apple TV. We enjoyed having all the comforts of home for 1/2 the price of a hotel.
  4. 4. Our Car Dave was so excited that he found an amazing deal on a luxury car. He couldn’t wait to drive a (for a week anyways) Cadillac! One problem... Instead of a Cadillac we got “or similar” luxury vehicle model. A Chrysler 300 with cup holders that kept your drink hot or cold and push to start ignition.
