Where I stayed
The first day in the RV was my birthday! Ed made me breakfast in bed and then we hit Seattle! We went to the aquarium and saw some cute fish and some seals and sealions. It was cool and a really nice way to spend my birthday! Then we went up the obligatory tower to watch the sun set over the city. Another amazing sun set and cool sights when the city lights up for the night! Ed took me out for dinner which was very nice, then we headed back to the RV and to Walmart car park to camp up for the night
Yesterday we headed back into Seattle and went to the famous indoor market where they sell huge fish. They also have some typical gift stores too. We went to the first ever Starbucks on the way back to the RV - it is very different to most of them as there are no indoor seats. They have made it quite commercial and a touristy place rather than a coffee house.
We visited Electro Impact today too to see the American side of the business. We also saw the Boeing factory and some huge Beluga (copy) planes. Then we set off for Portland via Mt Rainer National Park - huge mistake! Because October is classed as winter the main road through the park was closed at the 3/4 point so we had to turn around and come back the same way we had come in the pitch black, rain, snow and around hairpin bends. Not the best way to spend the night! We finally got to Portland at 3.15am.
