Photos :: Pike Place Market
These photos were taken over a few different market visits. The last photo shows some beautiful mountains which I think are the Olympic mountains. When I saw them a few days after our first visit to the market I wondered how I didn't notice them before. Well, it was cloudy the other days and so the mountains were hidden until the sun came out. On sunny days we saw mountains all over the place! Seattle is so beautiful.
During our time in Seattle the market was kind of my home base if I was out walking around. I knew there were washrooms there with change tables, snacks and of course a photobooth. All very important things.

Those mountains look like the Mounties, which way were you facing? 'Cause I think you can see the Canadian West Coast from Seattle. I looooove Cherry Blossom trees, so beautiful. I used to go to UVic and there were Cherry Blossoms in front of our building. I loved this time of year because the petals used to fall like a rain of pink fluff. :)ReplyDelete
We were facing...North? I think?Delete
Yes! The petals falling are almost as beautiful as the trees!
Eh, I thought I remembered seeing Seattle from Victoria, but I might be wrong.Delete
Mom and I visited some family in Seattle when I was 9 or 10, and she still talks about how gobsmacked I was by the guys flinging fish across the walkways in Pike's Place Market. I guess it made a big impression on both of us! The thing I remember best is driving past a mechanic's/towing place with a "Toe Truck" outside - yes, a little truck with toes on it! Pretty sure this is it: http://winktimber.com/reader/images/odyssey-toetruck.jpgReplyDelete
Oh, the things you remember as a kid...You all seem like had an awesome trip, judging by your gorgeous photos, hope you too have some wacky memories ;)
Yeah, the fish flinging was neat but I was also nervous I was going to accidentally walk in the middle of it.Delete
That truck is soooo cool!!!
This looks like such a fun place to walk around, and wow! Those mountains are beautiful!ReplyDelete
Looks wonderful! I'd love to visit seattle. Did you have a favorite coffee place?ReplyDelete
You will not believe this but I didn't have a single coffee while in Seattle. Except the free stuff in the hotel (which was Starbucks). I loooove coffee but only drink decaf now and honestly I felt like a turd ordering decaf in Seattle. I don't really know why. Ivan doesn't drink coffee at all so we didn't go for coffee anywhere.Delete
You definitely visited at the right time! I'm currently living just outside of Seattle, my recent adoptive home, and it's now turned back to down pour and rainey. Glad you were able to see how it is here when it's actually spring. Hope it was a great time :)ReplyDelete
I'm so glad we got some beautiful sunny weather. We are having good weather luck with all of our travels so far this year.Delete
Aw, what great shots of the market. I'm so glad you got to see Seattle's beautiful landscape. When the clouds clear and you can see the mountains, I immediately forgive the 8 months of clouds and drizzle. :)ReplyDelete
I would forgive it too for that beautiful view.Delete
The mountains over the water are amazing!! Looks so good, would love to visit one day.ReplyDelete
Oh I just adore Seattle so much! I used to be there every Saturday for about 5 months when I worked on the Cruise Ship and after my contract I stayed to explore a while! These photo's made me miss it so much! I hope Pete and I can go back some day! Hope you guys had fun!ReplyDelete
