Today we looked around Seattle, the Pikes Place Market and the downtown area.  It was extremely cold, only about 6'C.  Nice thing is its unlike most crass American cities, more like San Francisco.  Here are some pictures

These are ornamental cabbages, that they put into bunches of flowers.

Never seen so many chilies in so many colours

These are the size of a tennis ball, don't know if they have much flavour or not.

Lots of fish stalls in the market, this is a real seafood town.

Didn't like to ask!

This is one window of the shop, and there were 5 windows, double height, and each one was full of these old sewing machines.  Every inch of the interior walls as well, but they wouldn't let me photograph them.

The very first Starbucks shop, opened in 1912.

This is the footstool in front of the lounge chairs in our room, in front of our fire.  Yes we have a fireplace in our hotel room.

And here's the teddy on my bed.  You can take them when you go, they just add it to your credit card.

Tomorrow we hope to take a ferry to Bainbridge Island which is on the other side of Puget Sound.  Apparently very pretty place.
