We went on a Cruise...!

Well, a short hour long of the Puget Sound. Graham's mom was in town and we wanted to do some 'touristy' type things. Our first stop on Saturday was the cruise...and we had perfect weather for it! It was sunny, mid to upper 70s and the water was bright blue. We saw the shipyards, and got a grand tour of the Seattle skyline-learning lots of history and fun facts along the way. G and I both agreed, this was probably the coolest thing we have done in Seattle. Below are some pictures taken from the cruise ship.
Seattle Skyline from the Puget Sound

Condos...I like the look of these...what a great view they have!

Space Needle...designed to survive massive earthquakes!

View of the mountains were hazy due to the large amounts of wildfires burning in eastern WA.

The black building is the tallest building in Seattle...I think it is the Columbia building?

After the cruise, we headed to Pike's Place Market-always a good time, although crowded! We got a really good deal on some beautiful flowers...we paid $5 each for two huge bouquets. We also picked up salmon, scallops, veggies, amazing yellow nectarines, and monkfish to cook the next 2 days. We ate lunch at Pike Place Chowder (yes, again) and also had "World's Best" macaroni and cheese from Beecher's. G said it was good, but he has had better...although when I asked him to name where he had better, he came up with nothing. Personally, I found it to be the WORLD'S BEST! (Sis and Mauri...I found our lunch spot when we go to the market in November!!)
