For my mom and brother’s first full day in Seattle, we headed to Pike Place Market. I’d never been to the Athenian, but heard it was good to watch the ferries come and go. I loved that they served their fries as the Greeks do. Their Uli’s Gyro wasn’t shabby either.
We spent several hours amongst the mob where I finally realized Seattle would be overrun by Louisianans visiting for the game. I enjoyed chattin up all the folks from my hometown, though. I even spotted tiger tails:
Mid-afternoon, we visited the Space Needle. I’ve got an annual pass right now. For every trip, I can bring along a guest and get breaks on the rest. I’ve had it for six months and today’s the first time I made the visit…I’ll be going again soon.
In line at the ticket booth, Tiger fans were chanting in rounds for their team. Everyone on top of the Space Needle seemed to be from Louisiana.
Once Mr. T got home from work, we decided waterfront dining would be best with the spectacular weather. We headed to Lake Union and watched the ships go by until the sun set. After dinner, we decided to show my brother Husky Stadium & went to a bookstore. I found a gem “Breaking Bad News with Baby Animals” — I’d have picked it up, but the only copy was falling apart.
Great first day.
