Pike Place Market or bust
Above: Pike Place Market is Seattle's No. 1 tourist attraction.
Kate and I took the day off from bridge and did some sightseeing. After a bus tour, we asked the driver to let us off at the Pike Place Market. It's huge. We spent lots of time and barely scratched the surface.
One of the places I've heard about is the Pike Place Fish Market. The employees there throw fish around and have fun with what could be a boring job.
Seen on a tee shirt: "After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says W T F."
Above: Pike Place Fish Market will FedEx seafood to you anywhere in North America. A worker prepares crab legs to be sent to some lucky person.
Above: A customer orders a five pound salmon. A worker heaves it to another who weighs it. Excitement ensues.

Above: Pike Place Market has zillions of stalls. You can buy artwork, cherries, tee shirts, just about any kind of food and things you've never heard of. This is a shot of one of the many hallways.
