Seattle

Erin and I went to Seattle for a week for some much needed R&R.
From the plane, we had great views of Mt. St.Helen's and Mt.Hood.

On our first full day, the skies were mostly clear, and Mount Ranier made an appearance.


We spent a morning at the Pacific Science Center which is at the base of the Space Needle in the Seattle Center. I made friends with a grub.

This was an amusing display representing chromosomes.

I even climbed a fake rock wall- one of those lateral ones.

We spent quite a bit of time at the Seattle Aquarium in the freezing cold rain. Thankfully, most of it was inside.






We made our way to the Woodland Zoo just north of downtown. Lovely zoo, but QUITE chilly and VERY wet.






We got a chance to go to REI and try out rock climbing. I am HOOKED.


This is a view of the city from Union Station in the International District.

And we had one last view of the market on our last day....


Overall I had the best time ever. Erin is such a good friend to me, and a BLAST to be with!!!

I love the photograph of the anemone! And you with the grub.

Did you get to toss a fish at the market? :-D

no... no tossing for me. But, I did get to watch them. They always fascinate me. Maybe it's just the fact that they are all such great eye candy.... Not sure :)
