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.
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.
