Outstanding views from the train

We did up Seattle yesterday. Don and Jeanne and Shirley and I took two buses in and we took two buses and a train out. In between we went to the Pike Public Market which was very interesting. All local fare from fish to flowers and everything in between. We ate lunch on the water at Elliott's Oyster House and it was tres yummy. Don, Shirley and I went up into the Space Needle 520 ft. up. Great views of the city and finished up by taking a city tour on a double decker bus for FREE. Since they did not have time for us at 4:45 for the entire tour they let us ride for an hour for free. We did almost a complete circuit. A savings of $70 per couple. It was a beautiful day with sun and low 80's. The locals were saying summer has finally come to the Pacific NW. Good, just in time for us. Going on the Boeing factory tour this morning. It is great being with our long time friends. Enjoy the pics.
