Such a vibrant city! We are in the Mayflower Place Hotel downtown, a 5-minute walk to Pike Place Market and in the middle of great shopping, museums, restaurants, and sightseeing. The weather has been spectacular…sunny and warm. The first photos are a few from Pike Place Market, while those at the end are from the Seattle Art Museum.
At the market, we watched Beecher’s famous cheese being made, did some on-site tasting, and bought their cheese curds. It sounds strange, but they are small nuggets of deliciousness, as you can see in the photo. We have been enjoying trying various chowders…Ivar’s is spectacular, slightly sweet and very chunky…and catching up on the movies we missed while on our Alaska cruise. At the famous fish vendor where they toss fish to each other, we also caught the face of this bedraggled-looking monkfish. Just walking around the city has been fun, as it is very diverse and interesting.
