Seattle - Brief, BUT Beautiful!!!

Spent the day in Seattle.  It's just another city, and once you have seen one city, you have seen all cities.  However, the weather was very much in our favor today, and it was great being out and about.  I do like Seattle, but for some reason Vancouver, Canada is still calling my name???
We, for sure, did the tourist things, but not with out starting the day at the Temple.  I was a little disappointed to see that it was under construction.  Pictures didn't turn out the best, but it's what is on the inside of the temple that matters.  Small world - one of the temple workers is a member in my parents ward in Ivins.

After the temple we went "downtown" to Pikes Place and ate some yummy fish and chips - best I have had south of Alaska.  Then it was off to the Space Needle.  Before going all the way to the top we hit the music museum right next door - not the most exciting, and I am $14.00 poorer than when I started out today.  
All and all Seattle was fun, but it's time to leave for Oregon - I've had my fill of Washington, and am excited to see another state tomorrow.  Gosh, I'm getting into quite the life of just traveling on the road...HOWEVER, I will not be making this a career?

Wow! Just like any other city?!?! I'm actually offended! ;) Guess that just means you didn't have time to really enjoy everything about it. Seattle is definitely not like any other city unless all you are looking at are roads and buildings. You'll have to come back another time and I'll give you the "local" tour. You just need more time and someone to show you more than the tourists spots.

I bet your experience at Pike's Peak was better than ours. We were all tired and hungry when we went, but it was still pretty cool.
