We started out in Seattle, visiting Pike's Market, watching them throw fish at the market, beautiful bouquets of flowers - most for $5 or $10 bucks! - and lush fruits and veggies. We snacked our way thru, then indulged in a seafood feast at the Fisherman right on the dock.
Mendenhall Glacier and a bear sighting...
Oops! Here's the real bear, sauntering down to the stream to catch his supper of tasty salmon.
There were fields of purple flowers everywhere, along the street, in the ditches. They're a weed here called Fireweed, but beautiful.
We were amazed at how well flowers grew when the highs thru the summer are about 60, but they get alot of rain.
So that's the trip so far. Follow Pam's Facebook page for daily updates (my phone doesn't work up here in the wild). More later!
