US West Coast Drive with Two Cousins: in Seattle (Day 1)

July 21, 2017

This morning I took a four mile walk north along the waterfront in Seattle through a park. Mount Rainier stands alone as I looked across the harbor in Seattle. Like Mount Shasta it is an active volcano, but Rainier is considered to be one of the most dangerous volcanos in the world.

Pike Place Market – Seattle, Washington

Only a few blocks from here is the “Pike Place Market” which we have visited a couple of times. It is truly a diverse street market, but I would suspect that most of the customers were tourists. Trip Advisor says: “One of the few authentic farmer’s markets in the United States, this hub of delicious scents, delectable eats and delightful personalities attracts nine million visitors a year.” I suppose some people might consider the fish stands a “delicious scent”… but not me. Pius went clothes shopping today and I took the camera to the market.

Big cruise ships routinely “park” at the dock in front of our hotel. They do it at night and are so quiet that we haven’t been able to watch them arrive or depart. How does a 1,000 foot (305 M) cruise ship just sneak in and then leave without detection? I don’t know, but they do it.

Just a relaxing day today.

About storiesretoldblogger

I am an Elkhart, Indiana native and became interested in applying video to history when consumer video cameras were first introduced on the market in the late 1970’s. My production company, Stories Retold, specializes in preserving oral history, traditions, and values with video. Primarily interviewing individuals, I sometimes document families, and on occasion document an entire community. My niche is developing a personal relationship with clients which helps me to tell their story just the way they would like to have it told. Everyone has a story worth preserving, and I enjoy discovering interesting stories from people with whom I come into contact on a daily basis. In years to come, these videos will be priceless as they portray original stories complete with visual images and actual voices filled with all the primary material and emotion that was intended to be. I gain a strong sense of personal satisfaction with each completed project whether it involves an individual or an entire community.
