Seattle

Wow, I have had one long day here in Seattle and I am exhausted. I wanted to share some photos with you all before I catch the ferry to Alaska tomorrow. Here’s what I’ve managed to squeeze in in the past 30(ish) hours:

Of course I visited the Space Needle…DSC_0344 DSC_0416 DSC_0379Check out the sunset from the top! And the Starbucks at the bottom. Well, it had to be done.

I also went on a brilliant underground tour with Rick, who it turns out used to drum for Tom Jones. The things people reveal when you tell them you live in Wales!

I stopped by Pike Place Market…

I also watched the seaplanes taking off from Lake Union…

I’m really glad I made it all the way out to Gasworks Park. It’s unsettling to watch people enjoying a sunny day on what is essentially a huge bomb waiting to go off. The hill in the background was made when they covered over one of the original buildings, as it was deemed to dangerous to do anything else with. The grass apparently has to be replaced every couple of years.

JAKOB – HERE’S A PHOTO JUST FOR YOU. I SAW THIS PLAYGROUND AT THE SEATTLE CENTRE AND COULD IMMEDIATELY SEE YOU CLIMBING ALL OVER IT.
