Sleeping in Seattle

Yes, I slept like a baby, here in Seattle, last night. We arrived around noon at the Hotel Andra on 4th Street. It has recently been remodeled and has the great boutiquie modern feel that I love. Here is a shot in the lobby:


Our room wasn’t ready so we checked our bags and headed for Pike Place Public Market:


I love the tables of fresh food and flowers that abounds:



We had some lunch and then walked up to the Seattle Library which is an architectural delight.


I love these bright yellow escalators which take you up and up until you get to the tenth floor.


I had loads of fun taking grid photos. Click to see larger view.

I love being in the city and taking photos of the architecture.



To see more Seattle photos of the library and Pike Place Market, go here.

We did a little shopping in the afternoon, but didn’t buy much. We had dinner at The Flying Fish at 8:30 pm. We had seating on the patio and had so much fun watching the parade of folks going by. It was pretty sad though when a big SUV got towed for illegally parking and a poodle was in the driver’s seat. I wanted to wait for the driver to show up so that I could give them hell for leaving the dog in the car.

Today, I had logged over 15,000 steps by 2:30 in the afternoon, but that is a story for the next post.

    The chairs in the hotel lobby are fabulous…and that escalator ain’t too shabby either!

    If you ever decide to start selling the screens you make from these.. please let us know.

    I guess I should find out if that company in Benicia will make screens for me. I have such ideas…

    I want to live someplace that has a 10-story library and bright yellow escalators. (Wistful sigh)

    Great pics, Gerrie!
