Out and about in Seattle

Yes, they have painted the trees blue. No. I have no idea why…

After a sumptuous breakfast (thank you Siler Cloud Inn) I headed for the bus station and a ride into Seattle. The busses to Seattle travel through these amazing tunnels underneath the middle of the city and it has been my ambition to get some pictures of the drive through them. So I sat carefully at the front and took a whole bunch of blurred, unusable shots. Oh well. At least I have an excuse to try again some time.

The weather was a bit grey, but I managed to make my way to Pike Place market without getting rained on too much, which was nice. I bought a bunch of things at the comic book store there, had a browse around the craft stalls and generally had a really great time.

After spending a good long time in Barnes and Noble looking at stuff and trying very hard not to buy anything, and then dropping in to the Japanese store I caught the bus back to Bellevue and wrote some exam questions. Well, a chap can’t have too much fun in one day.


After I’d written the questions I headed over to the MVP showcase, where 20 MVPs had been selected to show off what they have been up to. Lots of good stuff and a chance to meet up with folks I’ve not seen in ages. And there was beer.

I managed to stay up to 8:30 tonight, which I think is something of an achievement.
