Playing Tourist

Yesterday I spent the afternoon playing tourist in Seattle. I hit all the big places. Rode the ferry in. Took in all the color and energy at the market. Got to watch some fish fly even. Had lunch at my favorite little place. Which is 101 years old now the Athenian. Grabbed a chai at the first Starbucks. Walked further into downtown to catch the monorail out the Space Needle and then rode all the way to the top. The view was pretty nice. None of the mountain ranges were out, but the city and the sound were beautiful. It was a great day in the city!

The famous Pike Place Market sign and clock.

The Space Needle

Seattle from the top of the Needle!

Now for a little TV Seattle

If you have ever watched Grey's Anatomy this is the helo pad they use for the outdoor scenes. It actually belongs to KOMO TV 4. It is across the street from the Space Needle.

If you ever watched the show Fraiser this is the converted condo building where he lived as seen from the top of the Space Needle.
