A Weekend in Seattle (12)

Friday, June 03, 2011 by , under

Seattle is the northernmost major city in the contiguous United States, and the largest city in the Pacific Northwest and the state of Washington (per Wikipedia), about 4.5hrs flight from Houston, TX.

Seattle was also the first destination of our 2 weeks trip. Though a short stay, it was great one for us.

Pike Place Market, Seattle.
Pike Place Market, a must go, said one of my friend. Great atmosphere, great food, plenty to explore, what not to like?

The market overlook the Elliott Bay.




Raw tuna from one of the fish store. So buttery, so flavorful, so goood!




Yup, they sell boneless banana too!


"Really Freakin Sweet" - no kidding, we tried.



At Pike Place Market - First Starbucks
World first Starbucks is there too, still using the original logo.

Colin, nice photos sharing... remind me about the Seattle trip I had in 2007. Btw, I'm just back from Austin, Texas. Didn't manage to make it to Houston, otherwise can meet you in person. :)

market is always my favourite place to shoot photos. I find that markets in Western countries are cleaner and more pleasant, compared to Malaysian ones.

卡珞 - Thank you! Let me know next time you're in Austin, my wife and I will go meet you!

Michelle - Thank you! It is an amazing place.

MSKY - Thank you! I learn a lot from you.

funmama - We love tulips too! Seattle is definitely a nice place to visit!

温馨小屋 - I'm glad that you like it! I have plenty of photos from the trip, too bad I still don't have much time to post it yet.
