Here is the second part of our little journey through Seattle.

Ballard Locks (Tagging and checking fish)
Butterflies at the Pacific Science Center
Lunch at Twisted Pasty
Lauren has wanted to visit Seattle since her first trip out to Oregon to move me and my things. As this was her 4th trip, I finally relented. While I did have a good time in Seattle, it was a miserable drive up in traffic, horrid parking the first night, and a miserable drive back down in traffic.
So. Here is the first part of our trip.
Pike’s Place Market
Underground Tour (totally worth it, enjoyed the tour guides and the tour)
The very delicious French bakery.
Gorgeous flowers all over and the peonies were in full bloom. The smell was lovely when we were amongst the flowers.
The fish smell however, it was not nice. I did not enjoy the fish at all. Watching the workers throw a fish here was somewhat entertaining, but really it’s just people throwing fish.
And this thing. Ew. Why would you stick your gum on a wall. It’s just unsanitary. Unhygienic. It’s completely against my nature. I didn’t like it one bit. Yuck.
Yuh-Chi also suggested that we take a ferry ride and after checking out our options, we settled on Bainbridge Island. I thought I would have more trouble with the ferry ride, but as it turns out, I can handle a ferry ride just fine.
Here was our view of Seattle from the Ferry.
And we enjoyed a little time on Bainbridge Island at the Fay Bainbridge State Park.
