Seeing Seattle

Russ and I decided to take a trip down to Seattle this morning to see the Space Needle and Pike Market Place. We got down there just after 10 am and parked on 2nd and Virginia Street. We walked up to where we could catch the Monorail over to the Space Needle. It was a very interesting sight.

We purchased tickets at the Military Rate ($12.50 each) and proceeded in line. We had to wait about 15 minutes and it was well worth it. Getting a 360 degree look at Seattle from 605 feet in the air was awsome. We spent about 40 minutes up there just oohing and awing. Would I go back to see again? Yes it is well worth it.
We then went down to Pike Market Place. They had a lot of fresh produce, flowers and fish. We also saw them making Curd Cheese and Piroshky. Today there were also a lot of people there. We just walked around and got to see what all was there. Another interesting place. We had fun all day.

Tonight Nancy and I went to the pool and hot tub. We left Russ watching a baseball game and Jim watching TV. We met a number of interesting people while in the pool. Russ even had to call because he thought we were lost. We had only been there for about 2 hours.
