Greetings from Seattle



This post comes straight from the rainy city of Seattle! I arrived late last night and am staying with Dan and his sweet roommate (and of course Otis and Tommy). I say sweet because she is, but also because he neglected to tell her I was coming until 10 minutes before he left to get me!! Anyway...

We spent today driving around Seattle seeing some of the various sites. We walked to the top of an old water tower that has a great view of the city. It's located right outside the Seattle Art Museum and is very pretty. The entire thing is encased in brick, with stairs leading to top. Once there you can look out the windows to get a great 360 view of the area. We wandered to West Seattle for coffee and window shopping. Then back to downtown Seattle to wander down the beach and a foray into Pike's Place Market. Yes, I saw the flying fish. The whole place was exactly like I remembered it. After that we went to a sculpture park. It was pouring down rain by this point, but it didn't matter - we still had fun. And since rain is the standard here, it doesn't phase anyone much.

We're taking a break to recharge now, then we'll head out to dinner and who knows what. Until tomorrow...
