We decided to ride the Ducks of Seattle this year. A seriously touristy thing to do for someone who grew up there, but they seemed to have so much fun. Plus I am always up for useless trivia....
|We caught our ride at the Space Needle|
|The duck whistles were a couple dollars. This was either a good|
or a bad. Depending on the volume.
|The people in front of them left after 4 minutes of quacking.|
|Pike Place Market - the only corporation allowed in PPM is Starbucks|
because it started there as a small business.
|Hard Rock. the guitar sign here is upside down, and is a Fender vs|
a Gibson. Every other Hard Rock has a Gibson.
|We headed out to Lake Union|
|The city skyline - or part of it.|
|Some of the houseboats. They have to have an engine onboard.|
|Floating houses. Only 500 are allowed on the lake ever, and a lot|
without a house currently starts at 900,000.
|The entire skyline.|
|Gasworks park. A shut down refinery, with spectacular views.|
|Recognize this house? I did!|
|It's the Sleepless in Seattle House! It sold last summer for 3 million|
dollars. I was so excited to see it, I LOVE THAT MOVIE!
|Going home we were getting a little chilly, but still having fun.|
|The house on the right with the columns is owned by the founder of|
|I have no idea how one could Kayak, let alone Kayak standing up.|
|I love boats.|
|This is an old toolshed which rents for 800.00 a month. It's around 200 square feet.|
|Personally, I'd live in this house.|
|One big fishing boat was moored there.|
