After a short drive, and a shorter ferry ride, we arrived for two days of r&r in Seattle. And we quickly found our way to Pikes Place Market, where we bought a wonderful lunch of nibbles - calamari salad, salmon, crackers and fresh Washington cherries. Mmm mmm good! And for those of you who read our Kodiak blog - we found a store that carried products from Pickled Willy's - and promptly bought our favorite - pickled king crab.
For those of you who don't know Pike's Place Market - it is on water's edge - 9 acres, four floors down from street level - of all and any type of stores including fish, fresh fruit, flowers, veggies, art work, and all things that you never knew you needed or wanted. Plenty of hawkers around, and lots of buskers. It definitley deserves two days of wandering around.
We were able to take the tram from our hotel, and enjoyed parking the car for the two days. We also enjoyed (more Karen than Ron) having our own bathroom, with a shower with lots of hot water, and easy to find in the middle of the night.
Rejuvenated and clean, we were ready to hit the road again, and continue our life living in our tent, and out of the back of our car.
