I just got back from Seattle. I was prepared for rainy weather which was good because it rained every day I was there! I brought an umbrella that managed to catch a gust of wind and turn inside out the first time I used it. But before looking for another one to replace it I noticed a container of umbrellas in the lobby of my hotel. After finding out they could be borrowed I used one every day and stayed nice and dry.
Seattle is a great city for walking and there are overhangs on buildings that provide protection from the elements when walking from one block to another. Although it was January the outside temperature was mild, and sometimes the weather went from a fine mist to light rain to a downpour (and then back to a mist). As I walked around downtown I even saw a place to get gelato. This should confirm that I will find gelato wherever I go!
I knew that I wanted pictures of the sign in front of Pike Place Market so I took several. As I walked around inside the market I noticed a door in the back that provided a view of Elliott Bay. After I took some pictures of the water I turned around to go back inside. When I looked up I saw the back of the market entrance sign. I had a feeling that most people don’t notice this and it seemed like a good idea to get a picture. It will become another memory of Seattle.
