Alaska '08, Day 67, Seattle

Sun Aug 17, 2008

We drove down to Pioneer Square first thing today. Cheryl wanted to hit the Klondike Goldrush National Park. The kids got another junior ranger badge because this junior ranger book was different than Skagway's. The parks' display here is the best I have seen about the goldrush, better than Skagway's or any we saw in the Yukon.

We walked Pioneer Square and took some pictures of the buildings and totem poles. The weather today was sunny, hot and clear again so there was a ton of people downtown.

We hit Pike Place Market. It was jammed, they are celebrating their centenial this year and they had a mini festival today. This has got to be the best city market in the US. We got the obligatory picture of the kids on the pig.

We checked out the seafood stands, their tourist prices are more expensive than home but it is interesting to look since they have everything.

We picked up some Ranier cherries, last of the season, its getting late. Lots of fruits and veggies. And Cheryl got some flowers, their flower market is amazing and the prices are cheap.

Also checked all their art stands outside. Really a great place. There is something here for everyone.
