The drive out of Seattle was easier than expected, but driving at 8am with the top down was a bit of a mistake. I was blue with the cold by the time I could find a rest stop to put it back up. I'm sure the other drivers were laughing or more likely thinking "what a wanker" lol.
The drive was STUNNING! I avoided the main route I5, and opted for the more scenic, but much narrower, US 2. I Drove high up into the mountains to a place called Steven's Pass
Was quite tired after the drive, and was pleasantly surprised by the nice hotel, I'd booked. Great views over the river in Spokane. The only reason I choose to stay in Spokane, was because it was on the way, and just somewhere to crash out after driving, but it really is a nice small city. Took a walk along the river front, and down the main street, and saw the had an IMAX, so decided to see Prometheus. Well there's 2 hours I'll never get back! The reason I didn't enjoy it may have had something to do with what happened just before...
As I bought my ticket, I clocked the Ben & Jerry's counter. Decided to have the Chocolate brownie, hot fudge sunday with whipped cream and chopped nuts
Weird thing...when I left the cinema at around 9.30, the streets were empty, I mean totally empty, no cars, no people, nothing. Odd!
Had a small nightcap on the way back to the hotel, and fell asleep watching True Blood. X
