After getting in late on Tuesday night, we started our day at a decent time and borrowed a car to drive to downtown Seattle to Pike Place Market. I ended up parking in the wrong place, which meant we had to climb about a thousand steps to get where we were going, but once we got there is was worth the effort. The market is an indoor farmers market full of artisans hawking crafts and farmers selling fruit and vegetables. We bought t-shirts for the kids, gifts for friends, lotion for Leslie, and a piece of honeycomb for Alison and me to share. The highlight, of course, is are the fish mongers atthe end of the market. You've seen them, of course, as they're famous for tossing salmon and sturgeon and halibut from one end of their stall to the other, much to the delight of the crowds of camera-toting tourists encircling the shop. We stopped for a while, and the kids were fascinated by the monk fish, intrigued by the bin of live cray fish (or baby lobsters, according to Kate), and terrified by the octopus. Here's a short video of the flying fish. From there we stopped in at the original Starbucks, and guess what? It looks just like the Starbucks in your town. Henry started running a bit of a fever, so we called it a day and drove back to West Seattle.
