Always Sunny in Seattle When Harriet Visits

Every time Harriet the Haribo visits Seattle she always has sunshine.  And, of course, every time she visits Seattle she has to go down to the beautiful Public Market.  It's probably her favorite spot in the emerald city.  The colors, the food, the fish, the flowers, the free samples, and the beauty of everything just makes Harriet giddy as a gummy bear! 
Last but not least, you have got to go see the Seattle Space Needle.  It's a must do when visiting Seattle.  Lucky for Harriet, her good friend lives right in downtown Seattle on Queen Anne.  How spoiled is Harriet to have such good friends in such an awesome city?  Pretty spoiled!

Harriet's Bestest Fan

Harriet is slowly growing a following, but has many more followers to gain. However, as of recent travels, she was able to meet up with one of her bestest fans. He just loves Harriet the Haribo, and wanted to get in with all the fun and get a picture with her cute gumminess. So, that they did!

Harriet and Harold visit Ireland

Harriet finally made it to Ireland. Harold has been to Ireland numerous times, but had been itching to get his gummy gal Harriet the Haribo over there. He had high hopes she would fall in love with the country as much as him. That she did.
Harold and Harriet spent their first day at this darling B&B in Cashel, Ireland. Harriet couldn't get over how darling the yellow door was! Harold knew that staying here with a yellow door would win Harriet over!
First stop on their morning, up the hill to the Rock of Cashel Castle.
Spent a lot of time roaming the grounds and walking around the castle.
Next stop for the gummy bears, Blarney Castle to kiss the Blarney stone.  They both have now been granted with more of the "gift of gab." Like these two gummy bears need more gab???
Back to Dublin the two gummy bears went.  First stop - a pint of Guinness beer. Harold told Harriet she wasn't allowed to have a pint, but he did allow for them to have a photo.
To Trinity College the two bears went.  Wanted to work on their intellect and spot The Book of Kells.
Just walking through The Long Room at Trinity College.  The books smelled old and smart.
Before heading back to the USofA they took a stroll over the Ha'Penny Bridge.  They couldn't have asked for better weather in Dublin.
Harold and Harriet were sad to return home.  But, Harriet has a new found love for the country of Ireland.  She hopes her and her gummy man Harold can come back to visit here often.

Heff the Haribo visits San Fran

Lombard Street:  The crookedest street in the world.
Harriet's dad isn't much of a traveler. In fact, he hasn't done much traveling. However, two things he would like to see before he kicks this gummy life for the next one, is San Francisco, and Mount Rushmore. Even Harriet hasn't seen Mount Rushmore yet. But, she has been to San Francisco numerous times. She recently had an overnight there a few weeks ago. It was almost 28 hours long. She decided she would fly her gummy dad out for her layover. What an adventure this daddy daughter gummy duo had! 

Heff the Haribo had a very long day of flying, and getting himself from his small town in Southern Utah to the (much too big for him) big city of San Francisco. Once he arrived Harriet and Heff hit the city via train. First stop was down to the ever popular Fisherman's Warf. He was thrilled to see Alcatraz out in the distance, but was a little disgusted with the amount of bums and homeless people wandering around begging for money. A musician was playing an old song in the distance that made daddy Heff, the Haribo, bask in the moment. 

After some popular clam chowder in a sourdough bowl it was off to catch a glimpse of the Golden Gate Bridge. Near the Bridge was a national park with historic boats, and great views of the bridge and Alcatraz. 

They weren't done just yet, they still had to go see Lombard Street. The crookedest street in the world. After a major workout up hill the two gummy bears had made it. All the way up just so they could walk down. Lombard street was quite popular that Sunday afternoon. 

A stop for some yummy ice cream cones, and a stroll through historic China town it was back to the train. Back to the hotel, and both gummies where worn out and ready for a good nights sleep. 

Harriet was so excited to actually have her gummy dad Heff the Haribo come on a visit to a major city in the USofA! She hopes she gets another opportunity to tour guide her gummy daddy around another historic city. Until then, next trip for these two is Mount Rushmore.
