In Seattle I attended my first NWFGS. It was mind-blowing!!

On entering the Seattle Conference Center, we were stunned by a 16 foot tall heart shape filled with succulents!
Getting closer. The love was REAL.
The succulents themselves were very happy and colonizing well. The colors were wonderful,
The buildings of Seattle along the way were a treat as always.

Last night we had an exquisite dinner at C'est si Bon Restaurant in Port Angeles, WA. I have driven past it for many years and we finally stopped in. WHAT A TREAT!!!

The food was spectacular and the holiday decor is breathtaking!
The prices are not cheap, so if that is a concern just have drinks and dessert. But definitely go!
