Pictorial review of the trip out west – Chapter One

12 Aug

Carol and I met up with my sister and my brother and his wife in Seattle.  We arrived on Friday, the 27th and left to travel down the west coast to San Francisco on Monday, the 30th. 

Here we are.

The Seattle sky-line from the ferry to Bainbridge Island

We spent the better part of Sunday at the Pike Place Market.  This the market where they throw the fish.

Checking out the fish for sale.

Great little bakery at the market.

A planter.

There was a flower booth in the market with the most amazing, colourful flowers for sales.  $5 each.  Can’t believe how inexpensive they were.

Hanging peppers.

Mozaic public washrooms.

Someone’s feathered friend.

The very first Starbuck’s.

Strumming the banjo in front of Starbuck’s.

Getting ready to peddle her wares.

Aprons for sale.

Strumming away.

Fish food??

Just another summer Sunday morning.

Street corner musician.

Cup of coffee, anyone??

Accordian player in the alley.

All in all, it was a very scary place.

That is enough of the market.  Chapter Two will show what we encountered as we headed down the coast.

    Seattle was nice when I visited many years ago. San Francisco was awesome. Kimberley wants to visit there and I’d love to go back.
    Great pix. Thanks for sharing.
    I hope Carol is doing OK. that looks like a lot of hoofing around on her poor foot. What a trip, though. The West is the Best, eh!
