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!

Look Up

You can tell the tourist season has descended upon Seattle when the Market is overrun with camera/phone camera bearing humans aiming at the same object. The Alaska Cruise Ships ( currently, a total of 3 ) disgorge their passengers on Fridays for a frenzied weekend of sightseeing and by Sunday afternoon the ships slowly parade, one after another, up Puget Sound and to Alaska. Tour guides with pink umbrellas and stuffed animals. DSC_4828-001DSC_4810-001 DSC_4812-001 DSC_4813-001 DSC_4814 - Version 2-001
