seattle, washington

I'm wrapping up the Pacific Northwest posts today with some of my favorite photos from our trip to Seattle.  Before our latest trip, I had spent about 2-3 days total in Seattle, always quick trips before we drove or took the train down to Portland to visit family.  This was the first time I had been to Seattle in summer, and I loooooved it.  Like marry it loved it (sorry Paul).  We spent our quick 24 hour trip walking around the city and eating delicious food. 

The day we visited was pretty warm, and I admit I stared pretty longingly at all those kids playing in the fountain.  

Instead of spending a lot of money to go to the top of the Space Needle, we opted for the cheaper, cheesier tourist attraction: the Monorail!!!  Paul had been singing me this song for many years, and I decided it was time for us to check out this World's Fair relic.  

It turns out the Monorail was actually super nice, and I wished that it could have taken me more places around the city.  Seattle, can you work on that?  

After dinner, we walked along the Waterfront - mostly so I could be as close to the water as possible.  Secretly I just wanted to try to see some seals or sea lions.  No wildlife, but I did see some super nice reflections and a gorgeous sunset.  

Seattle - you are such a pretty city!  I'm excited for more trips so I can start to explore more beyond the touristy areas.  Maybe we could stop by one of these swanky places during our next visit??  

Where have you been traveling this summer?
