Our Anniversary Vacation – Part 4

Part 1 – King Tutankhamun Exhibit at the Pacific Science Center
Part 2 – The rest of the exhibit
Part 3 – The Butterfly House at the Pacific Science Center

This one is short, I need some time to crop pictures and get a couple big posts going, so only 2 photos here.

After the museum, we wanted lunch, so we headed to a place my cousin and her boyfriend knew, called the 5 Point Cafe. The place is best described as a dive, and sadly I didn’t think to take a photo of it. Food was good though, I finally tried a Woodchuck hard cider, which wasn’t bad at all.

Our Anniversary Vacation – Part 3

Okay, I’m falling behind on posting photos, so this is going to be a short one. I have a raging migraine at the moment.

If you missed Part 1 or Part 2, I detailed our visit to the Pacific Science Center to see the King Tutankhamun exhibit.

So we made a quick stop by the insect exhibit before heading out. Unfortunately, my camera really shows it’s crapiness here, so I’ve picked a few least crappy photos.

Our Anniversary Vacation – Part 2

Missed Part 1? It’s available here, and I covered my awesome anniversary gift, the bronze sea life statues outside the Pacific Science Center, and the bulk of the King TutanKhamun exhibit, up to where you get to see the artifacts of the actual tomb.

After all the small rooms, we finally went into the area that was actually King Tutankhamun’s tomb. The Pacific Science Center has a ramp up into their main rooms, where you see whatever exciting thing you’ve come to see, in this case, King Tut’s Tomb. There’s a whole background on how it was discovered, and what they found as you walk up, and then they sort the main area into 4 rooms, each one detailing part of his tomb.
