Seattle Monday

In the morning we (a group of half traveling PVs and half Seattlites) made our way to Frances House in the international district for a day of service. Frances House is a place where people can come to get food, housewares, clothes and other items they might need. They have been around for over 40 years serving anyone who walks through the doors with the help of a strong group of dedicated volunteers that we were able to work alongside and learn from. On a typical day they see about 100 people and help them with whatever they may need.

After we were done at Francis House, we drove north to drop off a volunteer and we made our way up to the Fremont Neighborhood to see the Troll who lives under the bridge, check out the Ballard Locks, see Mt.Rainer in all of it's glory and even make it back in time to catch a beautiful sunset over the water in West Seattle after reflection. All in all a wonderful day.
