Flew to Seattle (3hr) this afternoon.
Seattle, home of Microsoft, Amazon, Boeing & Starbucks! Rock & Roll Museum set up by Paul Allen (Microsoft) using mostly his own collection. Lots of public art through the streets. All building projects need to commit 1% of their building costs to a piece of city art, so plenty to see.
Rode the Hop On Hop Off Emerald City Trolley for a couple of hours.
Went to Pike Place Public markets for lunch- oldest markets for fresh produce, gifts etc. (6levels).
Tonight caught the State Ferry for Bainbridge Island just before sunset (8pm). Watched the sun set over the island as we approached. Good view of Mt Rainier 90km south of Seattle. Had dinner on Bainbridge Is- small exclusive community with some beautiful waterside homes.
Late ferry home.
Space needle & city water feature.
Queue outside the original Starbucks store.
