Seattle Waterfront

Our daughter and her family had a chance to visit us before we leave Seattle. While there are some aspects of Seattle that make living here a pain in the rear, it is a wonderful place to visit (as long as you come in July, August, or September.) The last time our daughter was here it was December when the clouds were so low and the fog so thick I don’t think she believed us that there were beautiful mountains and water views.

This time the weather was perfect, and our first outing was to the downtown waterfront. Everyone loves the market, and even though we have been there dozens of times, we always enjoy poking around the nooks and crannies and always seem to find something new. From there we headed down to the waterfront were we toured the Aquarium, which the grandkids loved. We even rode the Ferris Wheel, which we had on our “before we leave Seattle bucket list.”

No trip to Seattle is complete without a visit to the yucky “Gum Wall.”
