Tourist, That's Me

Spent the day playing Tourist in Seattle. Walked through Pike's Place Market, looking at this and that. Also spent some time leaning on the Market Grill's counter, with the Nikon set on the counter and stopped way down. This of course led to long shutter speeds; somewhat experimental but we'll see. I'm expecting blurry crowd movement with a nice, solid background of the Market.

BTW, the Market Grill serves a right nice clam chowder too.

After the Market, we wandered over to the Space Needle. This is something that's been on my To-Do list since 1962, and it only took me 42 years to comlete. Not bad, considering. Again, something of the usual tourist thing to do, I suppose, but I've got some ideas for the shots I did walking around the Observation Deck, once they're scanned. Considering the day to be overcast and myself using B&W film, I expect to hear lots of comments about gosh, it's too bad that's not in color... :-)

We're having crabs for dinner. Yum!

Then up early tomorrow, and off to SeaTac for the journey home.

I absolutely *loved* Seattle. It broke my heart that I wasn't able to spend more quality tourist time there. I was overjoyed to see the fish tossing at the Market; I had the best meal of my entire life at a place called the Brooklyn, where I discovered what is now one of my favorite wines (an Oregon Pinot Gris called Adelsheim); and I have cousins that live just outside of Seattle.

Returning there for a real vacation is very much on my to-do list. I'm glad you enjoyed your time there, too.

Hey! When did you sneak in here? Don't you have a baby or something to take care of? *G*

I am already hoping, and planning on being asked back next year to the same conference. Ruthie's got cousins who will be living across teh Sound by then, near Bremerton.

I can type about 30wpm with one hand while the other cradles a baby... :)

I also had cousins who lived in the area, who I hadn't seen in years. It was pretty funny. We made plans for dinner and Evan met me in the lobby of my hotel. Upon seeing each other, we both broke out into laughter - neither of us had really changed and the joy of seeing our essential selves was overwhelming. It only added to an already marvelous time.
