Back from Seattle

Ben and I spent the greater part of last week on vacation in Seattle. We had a blast. Neither of us had been to the Pacific Northwest before, and we definitely hope we can go back sometime. We did a lot of touristy things, like visiting Pike Place Market, the Seattle Aquarium, the Woodland Park Zoo, the Experience Music Project, the Pacific Science Center, went kayaking, took a harbor cruise, and drank lots of coffee. Below are some pics we took-enjoy! Also, I've linked the stuff we did to their respective websites in case you too are planning a trip to Seattle and are looking for things to do.

Downtown Seattle with with the Space Needle poking out in the background.

The Seattle skyline from the harbor.

Me and Ben on the boat taking a harbor tour. Yep, we are wearing jackets because the high temperature was in the low-mid 50s all week. It was AWESOME!!!

Pike Place Market downtown.

Some really big fish at one of the stalls at Pike Place Market.

Me and Rachel the Pig at Pike Place Market.

The original Starbucks coffee shop downtown. The original logo is a little more provocative than the current logo.

The marina at the Agua Verde Paddle Club where we went kayaking.

A heron at the marina.

A view of the Experience Music Project from the monorail.

Apparently the gorillas were having a meeting when we visited the Woodland Park Zoo.

A duck in the bear exhibit!

Ben and the duck posing for a photo.

Me feeding a bird in the birdhouse at the zoo.

Me and an octopus at the Seattle Aquarium.

Wow! Looks like you guys had a great time!

That reminds me of my friend who lives in Seattle. Last Halloween she participated in the "Seattle's Thrill the World Guinness Book of World Records effort". She's the one in the white dress on the front left - "1999 Zombie Prom Queen" :) Enjoy!
