This is flying over Seattle.
The gorgeous Cascades were prominently on display, as we flew over Central Washington!
Lake Michigan was even apparent from the air
although Lake Ontario was a little shrouded by clouds.

Although the Fairmont is gorgeous, ornate
and has such historic appeal. Apparently Lena Horne has sang here. According to Wikipedia, “The Copley Plaza Hotel has been host to many famous people. Every U.S. President since William Howard Taft, and royalty from Greece, Thailand,Abyssinia, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Belgium, Denmark, and the United Kingdom have visited the hotel. Celebrities including Tony Bennett, Lena Horne,Dorothy Lewis, Frank Sinatra, and Luciano Pavarotti have also been guests, and Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton chose the Copley Plaza for their second honeymoon.”
I can see why the Disney show, “the Suite Life” is based on this hotel and sometimes filmed here!
Any recommendations for quick tours around the Copley Plaza area? I saw several beautiful churches, like St. Trinity’s from the taxi.
