I absolutely adore the Emerald City, Seattle. Of the cities I've visited, it's either number two or number three of my favorites, depending on my mood. Number one is London; Seattle is in competition with Paris. A few weeks ago, I stayed in Seattle, but couldn't take any pictures since my husband had it while on deployment. Now, I have an iPhone!! That means better pictures and more posts.
Today in Seattle, we did the touristy things. After shopping at REI's flagship, we walked toward Pike Market. It was a beautiful day, perfect for walking. On the way, we past by the Fifty Shades of Grey condo building, Escala.
After arriving at the Market, we explored it all. Tip: try to avoid it on the weekends.
You do get to hear a lot of musicians. Some are good. Some aren't. You should see the gum wall. Yes, a wall of gum. What makes it worth it is the large collection of artwork on the other walls by it.
I really love all of the fresh flowers. If we didn't live two hours away, I would always get them.
I finally got to see the little original Starbucks on our way to the ferris wheel. The wheel should be on everyone's list; it offers some of the best views.
We ended our fin with delicious French macaroons from Le Panier at Pike Market.
The truly is a wonderful city.
