A Day With My Son, Grandson and Football

We arrived at the campus early after a wonderful breakfast at Voula's on Northlake in the University area of Seattle. We each had an omelet of one kind or another and spent some time catching up as we waited for our meal to arrive. We ate and left to find parking. We ended up parking under Red Square at the campus. It affords us easy entry and exit and gives us the opportunity to walk across the campus as we head to the stadium.

I immediately took out my camera to take some pictures of the buildings and the landscape around the campus. I have more but I like these the best.

There are many ways to get to the stadium but here in Seattle one of the most popular ways is to take a boat. Tailgating on a boat looks like it might be fun. Hope all those boat owners have a designated driver because we spotted at least two police boats wandering through the maze.

The game started and it quickly became apparent that the Huskies might be competitive in the PAC 12. A 52-24 blowout brought a 5-1 record, 3-0 in PAC 12. Seven different players scored their seven touchdowns. The stats from the game.

I hope that you had as great a Saturday as is did......


  1. Love college football -- traveling to the stadium in a boat would be interesting!

  2. It was sure a beautiful fall day here in the Pacific Northwest for enjoying a football game. Glad to see the Huskies back on a winning track again.
