Day 9 Seattle


Today we set sail for Seattle!



This was Maddy's first ferry ride.


So we did what any first timers would do to pass the time....


We made silly faces...ha!

Jackie.....this picture is for you!

We wish you were here.


Warning....pictures below are GROSS!

On our way to Pikes Market we passed this alley.

Gum Alley.


It was about all I could do not to shower in hand sanitizer....really.

Maddy made sure she had her gum ready...



This is her adding her gum to the wall of YUK!

Makes me want to shower again just looking at these pictures...ha!




Fishy Fishy...



The guys would yell out and fling fish across the counter....neat!

When the owner found out we were visiting from Louisiana, he made sure to hand us his business card.

 Sam...your gator will be on its way soon ;)





How I wish we had a flower market like this close to home....sigh~



We watched cheese in the making...yum!



Windows being washed...scary!




On the ferry ride back we watched the Today Show film a small segment.

Not sure what day it will air but it was fun to watch.



We were wondering if it had something to do with the bikers...hmmmm?


What a full fun day :)

  11. Oh, how I miss living in the Seattle area! We used to go to a place called Theater Sports, located in that very Gum Alley :) I agree, gross yet something to see if you are at Pike Place Market. I love that place. Hope you enjoyed your time there. Not sure if you're a coffee lover like me or not, but the Starbucks across from the market was the very first Starbucks Cafe. A bit of useless info, haha.
