Seattle, May '09

Ok, here are some pictures from our last Seattle trip. Since we have been there often, we had a relaxing, do whatever kind of trip. It was a GORGEOUS weekend. We spent some time window shopping at all the stores, seeing the sights, and eating... and eating some more... It's a good think we walked everywhere, as we had major calories to burn.

The next few pictures are of the downtown Seattle Library. I know, its wierd to go sightseeing to a library but it was on the list of top things to do in Seattle, so we were curious. And were impressed! This building looks like it was created by 5 different architects with wildly differents tastes, and stuck on top of each other. Each floor was unique, and it was like walking in an M.C. Escher picture because the floors were staggered.

This level, I'm not sure what the point was, other than for asthetic appeal, because I didn't see any books. I felt like I was in a blood vessel!

Looking down to the main lobby area.
There was a bright green/yellow escalator that went up straight about 6 stories tall and on either side were the levels full of books. This is were it was staggered like a split level home. The right side would be higher than the left side. Weird.

this would be a great reading area.

Looking down from the top story.

This was at H&M store. Purple cut-off sweat pants, Orange hoodie, plaid shirt and converse? I guess I"m not hip enough in fashion to think this looks good.

We ate at Ivar's, on the Pier, and of course got Clam Chowder. Such a beautiful day!

At Pike's place... How do they do that?!

This was an awesome place to eat, they had amazing little cheesecakes. I got a PB chocolate one, that was sooo good, and Derek got the Classic NY cheesecake. Yum!

Of course, we had to get flowers at Pikes.

At our hotel, Derek spent like 15 minutes in the bathroom taking pictures... this is what he was doing. He was getting his pupils to look square. We have like 10 different pictures in varying degrees of closeness of the square pupils. It makes me think the book, The Host by Stephenie Myer
