Cooling off in Seattle

Arrived in Seattle Wed at 4:45 just at rush hour traffic. Took us an hour to go 12 miles to our hotel in Bellevue. After checking in we hit the street to find food. Had a wonderful Alaskan salmon dinner at McKormick & Schlick.

Thursday morning took the bus over to Seattle downtown area (the bus was a whole lot easier than driving). First stop was the infamous Public Market

Of course we had to see the show at Pike Fish Market.

From the market we walked to the old section, didn't find much there so headed down to the waterfront where we stopped for a bowl of clam chowder.

Down a ways further we had to take a ride on the Ferris wheel.
Views from the ride.
From there we walked down the waterfront then up (and I mean up) to the space needle center. Across from the space needle were The Ducks Tour, so we hopped on board for a trip thru Seattle.
Here is our fearless driver.
The duck vehicle went into the water also, so had a tour of Lake Union.
We checked in for dinner at the top of the space needle at 5. What shall we have for dinner?
Let the meal begin!
We had a wonderful experience. The food was great, the service was excellent. And especially, the view was fabulous. Notice our jackets on all pictures.
Took the bus back to the hotel. It was a long (walked many miles) day, but a extremely enjoyable one. Will post what we did today later.
