Scenes from Seattle (Part I)
Pike Place Market is a very popular tourist spot in Seattle, that each time we mention that we’ve been to that city, we’re asked if we went there. This time we’ve finally trekked down to the famous Pike Place Market. Where do we even begin to show you the area, its quaint stores, restaurants and cafes, and the abundant market?
Here’s the street view from the corner of the fish stall where the vendors give everyone a “show” of tossing fish, and occasionally throwing a fake fish toy to viewers (which sends people screaming and gasping) for kicks.
Walking down to Pike Place, you’ll also see this from one of the streets. We found it hilarious. I’m sure it’s not intentional. Right?
Here’s the front of the market. There is a lot of fresh seafood to buy, and if you wish they can pack it up for you in airplane-approved packaging.
And what’s a trip there without seeing the first Starbucks that started all the evil weekly spending for a lot of people’s pockets?
There’s a trio singing right in front of the store, too.
More photos to come!
