July 2016 Seattle Day Two

Today I walked from my hotel to the Spaceneedle.  I started my walk at 8 AM so the streets were empty.  I got to the Spaceneedle shortlly after it opened so I headed up for a very chilly look at the city. The slide show below shows the direction and the view from that direction.

Here are some pictures from two Seattle Museums.  The glass sculptures are from the Chihuly Garden and Glass and the others are from the EMP Museum (Music and Sci-Fi Museum)

July 2016 Seattle Day One

August 1, 2016

My train arrived around 11 AM in the morning and I can’t check into my hotel until 4 PM, so the plan?  Take my luggage to the hotel and then explore.

I purchased an Orca card which is the method to pay for public transit.  I like using the multi use passes because I normally get on the wrong bus at least once until I figure out the system.  Google is great at getting you to the bus stops.

The first place I went was the Pike Street Market, I can’t believe people even try to drive down that street.  The fresh produce is amazing.

Next I tried to visit the original Starbucks but the line is very very long…

The next place I visited and yes I realize I did some back tracking, but I was just wandering around with no real plan… here is the most disgusting thing I saw..

yes, that is the gum wall, and the amount of gum that goes up and down this alley on both sides along with the “creativity” of some people making designs is total disgusting… A majority of people walking here said as much, but that didn’t stop too many of them from placing their own piece of gum on the wall.

I spent the rest of the day just wandering the streets and enjoying the cool weather.  Tomorrow is the Spaceneedle and EMP.
