. I want to be friends with one. After the aquarium, we hopped on over to the original Starbucks to grab some coffee. We sipped our coffee while people watching out the window. Seattle definitely has a diverse group of people. Once we finished our coffee, we walked in all kinds of stores: Brooks Brothers, Columbia, Mountain Hardware, and Macy's. Big cities have all kinds of stores. For dinner, we found a sports bar called Pikes. They brewed their own beer inside the restaurant. We decided to eat and drink for the rest of the night. People have been thinking that we have fake IDs because they are from a different state. At midnight, we drove back to the hotel to find a Chrysler 300 taking up two parking spots on purpose. So we wrote him a note. We then retired for the night. It had been a long day.
This morning we slept until noon. We were all tired from hiking 30 miles in three days. Once everybody was ready we told housekeeping that we were staying another night and went downtown. We parked in an all-day parking lot and started walking. We ate lunch at Chipotle for the first time. Afterward, we went to the Pike Place Market. They had people that would fillet your fish and sing, but I couldn't understand them. We watched a street performer in a brightly colored dress shirt and slacks sing and play guitar. "He seemed somewhat out of place, having more of a southern style compared to the grunge I would have expected in Seattle" –Evan. The market had a different store every 10 feet and the place was absolutely huge! It had four stories of random shops. We walked in a couple of them and looked around for a while. After touring the entire market we walked over to the Seattle aquarium. It was a decent size. The fish were exotic and the otters were bigger than I expected. The otters would dive down in the water; pick up a clam, and float on its back while it ate it
