Washington/British Columbia Trip – Day 2


If you want to keep costs down and get some exercise when visiting downtown Seattle, park at Amgen Co.  There is a free public lot right next to the sea wall.  It’s about a 40 minute walk to Pike Place Market.  We got an early start and arrived to the market around 8:15am, as the vendors were setting up.

I got a photo of the “famous” fish throwing guys!  The guy next to me threw the fish to the guy on the right.

The monorail was fun to take over to the Space Needle.  Since it was a cloudy day…I didn’t want to go to the top.

This is a large art piece near the bottom of the Space Needle.

On the walk back to the car…I took photos at the Olympic Sculpture Park.

This is a metal tree…

It ended up being a $7.50 day…purchase of donuts at the market and the monorail charge!

We grilled steaks back at the house for lunch and took a nap.  Discovery Park is only a 10 minute drive from the house, so we took a nice 2 mile walk on the trails.

I was told this is a weather Doppler radar.
