This morning we had a pilgrimage/Camino walk to some Seattle churches. At the Immaculate, they met us with cookies and water AND showed us the attic/museum which used to be the rectory in the Jesuit days. It was chock full of dusty old portraits and votive candle racks. This is Bishop O'Dea:
A whole box of sodality pins in mint condition:
Just a touch of the history of Seattle.
And an ancient calendar dating back to the year we were born. Well, maybe not so ancient.

Today we visited the studio of Father Trung Pham, a Jesuit and an artist. We started with lunch at Arrupe House.
There are three coffee choices but they are all Jesuit.
This series of abstract pieces is called "Crack." Pretty cool.
In the studio:
He also does sculpture, including a statue of St Clare which is somewhere on the Santa Clara campus!

Cash's birthday party was at Ron Tonkin Field, home of the Hillsboro "All Hopped Up" Hops. They played the Spokane Indians.
The mascot, Barley, came over to take pictures with Cash. Cash was not that into it.

Cash got a signed baseball in addition to the cake. A teenaged stadium employee cut the cake for us. He went with slabs rather than slices.
Even Auntie Reen got her picture taken with Barley, the big green hop.
Today we drove down to Hillsboro for Cash's birthday party. We stopped at Powell's. It was an absolute zoo. There was no quiet browsing to be had.
The Grotto was pretty noisy too. Full of pilgrims.
Please don't point at the flowers.
The sorrows and joys of St Joseph:
In the modern chapel. We couldn't help but be reminded of that Memorex commercial.

This was the day of our visits to hotel concierges with tourist brochures in hand. At the Best Western a tourist was asking about guided tours of Bill Gates' home.Then we hit the Pan Pacific.
There's so much construction it is hard to recognize downtown these days.
This sign was just asking to be posted on social media.
The view from the Edgewater lobby was amazing.
They use antlers in all of their decorating:
