We felt energized with the cooler weather and headed out for Pike Place Market

Do these prices look pricey to you ?

The sea food looks a little pricey to me, but I love it.

Great pics,

BTW, is the bottle shop still right next door to the markets.

 

Is the bottle shop the Pike and Western wine shop ? It is still there , but we purchased our wine at a Whole Foods Market which was located just below our hotel .

I am here and following along on both cruises; love Seattle and Alaskan cruises; can't wait to see your take on everything; your pictures are going to be amazing! We first did a cruise round trip from Seattle; second one was from Vancouver to Anchorage; both were equally amazing; I want to go back one day and add some land time in. Eagerly following along!

Joe and Pat, here I am! I know I'm a bit late, but you knew I'd be here! :D

 

Your pictures are great, as usual, and we're just getting started! :cool:

I am sure that is the one.

We do love our seafood as well and enjoyed it while there . DW is a big fan of razor clams which we don't have here in the warm Atlantic .

Coming from Florida, yes those fish prices are higher than I would expect.

 

 

 

 

We shopped out our local supermarket when we got back and both Salmon and Snow Crab Clusters are about $ 10 a pound , so we didn't bring any seafood back .

After leaving the Wheel we encountered a trio of lounge singers

We did take this book and found it to be very helpful

We wished that we would have seen more wildlife than we saw so in hindsight we wished that we would have went to the Aquarium

We also passed on this shop

and the bike ride .

We were getting very hungry and the shuttle driver mentioned that he liked Anthony's . Pat saw something on the menu that she really liked there - Razor clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl .

It came with a waterside view

I took photos while Pat was waiting for the food . I didn't have the heart to tell her about the water gushing from the pipe where the algae is during dinner .

But I do love an artistic manhole cover !

After dinner and returning to the hotel we were quite tired and almost ready for bed . I told Pat that I had an 'Uncle Ike' in Seattle and that we should pay him a quick visit before we went to sleep .

She wasn't amused .

Thank you Jane , we're glad that you like them . We're looking forward to showing the ship but we still had a full day in Seattle before boarding the Eurodam .

We noticed also that you are also booked on the Ecstasy . That was our first cruise back in the late 90's ! :) :D

I can hardly wait for that Kdam cruise and the chance to dive with both of you! :D

 

Seattle looks like it would be a fun city to visit. I guess it will have to take it's place in line with all the others on the ever growing list of places I want to visit. My dilemma now is whether I want to start the Alaska cruise I hope to book eventually in Seattle or in Vancouver. I guess that is not such a bad dilemma to have if one must have a dilemma. :D

We did miss diving on this cruise and look forward to diving and cruising with you and Barry . This was a fun get away for us and different for us since we didn't pay in cash before going ( and we have the charge card bill to prove it ! ) .

But it's also nice to plan ahead before going and having the money to pay before going ! :cool:

Nice eclectic mix of pics. Pat is looking well, I take it the knee is all better now.

 

Thanks Mic and yes she's doing quite well for all that she went through .

 

We try to be more careful with diet and have slowed our pace to try to prevent accidents - like when walking on glaciers ! :rolleyes:

 

But we sometimes forget how old we are because the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak .
