Seattle pics

Started out at the Pike Place Market, one of the best spots to go.

It happened to be the weekend of the Seattle Cheese Festival

The famous Seattle fish

Just a small section of the market. Reminiscent of home, but on a much larger scale.

It was also Mother's Day the day I was there, and everyone seemed to be walking by with fresh flowers.

Very busy day at the market.

Space Needle. I didn't go up, it seemed small compared to previous trips up the CN Tower and Sears Tower :P

Experience Music Project and Science Fiction Museum. They wouldn't let me take any pics inside.

Not just any old French bakery. This one is very French. I should have went inside to see what that meant... or maybe I didn't need to know.

A view of the water and the Olympic Mountains. Seattle has been getting a lot more cruise ship traffic after having taken some away from Vancouver.

Totem pole

A funky parking garage

Took this one for Anthony. Hacky sacks and chile pepper lights, together at last.

The white arch is Qwest Stadium, home of the Seattle Seahawks.

Ye Olde Curiosity Shop, down on the waterfront

Just a few of the huge trees. Had I been able to take pictures at the house I visited mid-week, that would have been even more stunning.

flashbacks to Seattle and my visit. It is the coolest garage as is that white tower behind it. Just to the right is part of the underground tour and a few blocks further the map store. Looks like you had nicer weather than I ever had there. Safe travels!

And remember, the totem on the bottom of the totem pole is actually the most important one.

I do have a pic of the bottom, but you couldn't see as much of the pole.
