View from the Pike Place Market

Yesterday, on a Chamber of Commerce weather day, we took our two grandkids to the Pike Place Market to have lunch and to check out the refurbed section of the Market. We traveled by bus from West Seattle; I have to insert that I think comparing NYC Subways and Seattle Metro buses is likely close to happening).

Highlights of the images ( which are all  shot on my iPhone, with the aid of a detachable lens  are: The Wheel, Mt. Rainier, Elliott Bay, Alki Point in West Seattle and the soon-to-become extinct Viaduct/SR99.

One of the highlights of the outing was viewing and contributing to the new Gum Wall!

Anyway, the foray into downtown Seattle for a few of hours was about all my broken down body could endure. The current Seattle agency in charge of tourism promotion of the city seemed to be doing a bang up job as the Market was jam packed, even for a Tuesday!

Not a Typical Day

According to  a recent Seattle Times article, Seattle is experiencing an influx of new residents, based on drivers license applications. Most of those incoming humans are coming from California and Texas. Go figure! My plea: please don’t move here! We have the worst ( or nearly the worst) traffic congestion, more gray and rainy days than you can calculate using Chisenbop and a political structure of rule by committee, which means nothing gets done, to list just a few reasons for not moving here. WARNING! The image you see in this posting is an aberration in the normal weather pattern!
