Today is the last day of our trip, at least for Mom and me. Dad is driving back and will be home later this week.

In the morning, we went into downtown Seattle again and spent a few hours at the Pike Place Market. This place is really cool. My Grama told me about the fish guys who throw fresh fish to each other. We watched for awhile and I saw them throw the fish twice. There is always a big crowd around this area. We walked through the whole market and I found the penny machine downstairs by a magic shop. I'm so glad to get another penny for my collection. Including the two I got yesterday which I forgot to mention, this brings my total to 18!

We had lunch in the market area. Mom and I had fish and chips, which was really fresh and hot. Dad had an Italian fish stew, which didn't look so good to me. We were close by an ice cream place called "the Shy Giant" so we all had a cone-mine was double chocolate espresso, Mom had pistachio and Dad had lavender honey. I tasted the lavender honey and it was really good!

We still had some time, so we walked around near the waterfront and watched the boats. There was a big cruise ship boarding in the harbor and we thought it might be going to Alaska. I'd love to go there someday.

Pretty soon, we had to get to the airport to fly home. It was sad saying goodbye to Dad, and I wished I could drive home with him because I don't like airplanes. Mom and I were in row 12 and I had the window seat. It was pretty squishy on the plane because it was full. We passed the time playing Crazy 8's and Rummy and watching a movie.

It feels good to be home again.
