  • ① Grandparents Andrew and Amanda loved their grandparents very much and would go every summer to Seattle to spend several weeks with them. They would go camping and to the beach in grandpa and grandma’s motorhome. One of grandpa’s favorite keepsakes was a photo I had taken of him walking hand in hand with my daughter, Amanda, when she was older. Last year, my daughter had the wonderful idea of re-enacting a photo that they had taken with grandpa and grandma twenty years earlier when they were young children. So, we did just that. At the time, no one knew that grandpa would unexpectedly die in less than a year. So now, those two photos, taken twenty years apart, are very precious and wonderful reminders of the great love my children had for their grandpa and grandma.

  • ② Mt. Rainier National Park Ascending to 14,410 feet Mount Rainier is the tallest mountain in Washington State and the Cascade Mountain range. The area around Mt. Rainier is a very beautiful and scenic area to visit. Mt. Rainier is an active volcano and is the most glaciated peak in the contiguous United States, having 26 glaciers, and it is the source of five major rivers. It was in 1899 that President William McKinley established Mt. Rainier National Park as America’s fifth national park. There are many beautiful alpine meadows and lakes and the park includes abundant wildlife. Growing up in the Seattle area, Mt. Rainier was always very visible to me and was one of my favorite places to visit. My family would go there often to camp and to hike on the many mountain trails.

  • ③ The Summer Palace A number of years ago I was living in Beijing, China where I was principal of a large International Private School. One of my favorite places to visit was the beautiful Beijing Summer Palace which is said to be the best-preserved imperial garden in the world, and the largest of its kind still in existence in China. It is listed as a World Heritage site, a masterpiece of Chinese landscape garden design. The highlights of the park include Kunming Lake, the Long Corridor, Longevity Hill, the Marble Boat, and the Garden of Virtue and Harmony. There is also a famous and beautiful 17-hole bridge. It is 150 meters long and looks like a long rainbow above the blue water. The paths along the lake lead you under shady trees or along a narrow-roofed colonnade known as the Long Corridor, that contains magnificently painted ceilings.
