Where I stayed
The cruise ship was magnificent. Due to the upgrade to the most amazing room I have ever seen, my family was given top VIP treatment
I walked around the Seattle area, the piers, Pike Place Market, and Seattle Center. And fell in love twice, first with the city of Seattle. I loved the calm hustle and bustle and the energy from the people, and secondly with one of the fish throwers whhooo was he good looking but in the end I decided he probably smells like that all the time, Ooofttta!!~! That evening I called Barry's brother Brian and they kindly picked me up in the city and brought me back to their home in the mountains. I awoke the next morning to discover the gazebo and pond in the back yard it was beautiful. I visited the Snoqualmie waterfalls and ate fresh bread from a 100 year old bakery and just relaxed. However I wanted to see more of the city.
I booked a room at the Green Tortoise Hostel and had a great time. I went out on the town with some Canadians on Canada Day. That was a little crazy we also rode every pig on the way home (pictures attached). The following day I was hardly feeling 110% and took a very long nap. But I was back up and running by the end of the night and rode up to the Space Needle to watch the sunset (9:45pm) and the city lights.
The weather was beautiful in Seattle. I really wanted to stay, I feel as if I missed so much of the city. But at least now I have an excuse to go back!!!
