Our time with the Sheffields came to an end and they headed back to Florida.  As for us, we still had a month left of our road trip, so we continued on our adventure of the west coast.  We drove out of the wilderness into the urban core of Seattle, WA.  Our first stop, of course, was Pike Place Market.

We saw the fish tossers and purchased some fresh salmon for dinner.

Then, we had to pay homage to the birthplace of Webley’s fav coffee shop, Starbucks.

Never mind the fact that  Webley hates the taste of coffee.  On one trip to Starbucks she asked me to order for her a frappacino.  The barista at the counter asked me if I wanted coffee in it.  I looked at him dumbfounded and asked, “what else would be in it?”  At that moment, Webley interjected “no coffee, please.”  I looked at her quizzically and she just shrugged her shoulders and said, “I don’t like coffee, mom.” I responded, “then why are we in a COFFEE shop???!!!”

There’s all sorts of weird stuff in Seattle.  Take this little guy who was snorkeling in a basket of fake flowers when we happened upon him.

Another interesting attraction is the Gum Wall.

Yes, folks, those are pieces of CHEWED gum stuck all over the wall in Pike Place Market.

All I can say about it is…GROSS!

One thought on “Seattle

  1. Loved the bubble gum wall; way too much to comprehend what started that; you’r right, YUCK!…The fish made me hungry looking at them. Yes, Webly is addicted to sugar water and whip cream it appears. Lovely family photos, Thanks. Tim
