The last sights of Seattle :D

On our last day in Seattle our luggage was again thankfully complete. We got the bag with clothes on tuesday evening, but the camera tripod remained elusive until thursday morning. The good thing about it all was that Martijn got to spend 168 dollars on clothing that the airline later refunded. Frank was a little less lucky in that the airline only refunded 75 dollars to him because his luggage was returned earlier.

In the previous entry we mentioned that we went to the Space Needle for our dinner, but we didn't show any pictures of it. To correct that glaring error you can now see the Space Needle in all its daytime glory right here. (For the nighttime version, scroll down and check below.)

On our last evening in Seattle we walked to Kerry Park. Kerry Park is a TINY park which in itself is not that interesting, but it offers one of the nicest views of the Seattle skyline. If you are ever in Seattle, make the effort to go there, it is truly amazing. It is basically where they take all the postcard shots from, so if some of the pictures look familiar......... (There will be some extra pictures from Kerry Park at the bottom of this page.)

In order to get to Kerry Park, we had to walk 1 hour each way. So we had the opportunity to take some nighttime shots of other sights as well. Our hotel was of course important to show off as we will not be staying in anything quite this fancy again for a long, long time. (Basically not until the next time Trude's work is picking up the bill.)
Those twin towers (ARGH! Am I safe here?!) in the picture are both parts of the hotel. We stayed in the left one on the 20th floor (Frank was on the 39th floor), which is REALLY high for someone from The Netherlands!!!

We are flying to San Francisco next. (Well..... By the time you read this we will already be there of course.) And VERY much hoping the luggage doesn't get lost again...

P.S. You can click on any picture in between and underneath this text to see a slightly larger version, AND you can add comments to pictures individually. So if one really speaks to you then feel free to let us know :)

Those pics
Hi guys,
Those pics are absolutely stunning. I'm not so much of a city kind of guy but those nighttime skyline pics are really great. Keep up the good work!
