Tea Ceremony 17th August 2012

I went to an authentic Chinese wedding tea ceremony where the bride and groom show respect to their elders by serving them tea. Afterwards we had an authentic Chinese banquet where I tried some new foods like jelly fish and sea cucumber.
 Glenn all spiffed up ready for the tea ceremony

 Glenn got a bit stressed with the traffic as he didn't want to be late

 I love this view on the trip into Seattle

Crescent Bar 6th-9th August 2012

Being on holiday can be very stressful sometimes so the only thing to do is go on holiday during your holidays for some stress relief .... here's where we went.

 the pool

 the stores

 when there's a 50% off sale on swimwear and you can't choose which one to buy you buy them all right?

 it was Bob's birthday while we were driving home so I thought I would have a beer in his honour
cheers Bob
