A couple of weeks ago, Rich’s son, Chris and his wife, Shawnie, visited us. It was a gorgeous day, slightly cool with screaming blue skies. Because parking is a challenge and expensive in downtown Seattle, we took the bus to Pike’s Market, the big tourist spots downtown.
Stacey, Rich’s daughter, along with her boyfriend, Jesse, took the ferry over from Bainbridge Island, and met us downtown. For the next few months, Stacey and Jesse are living and working on a tall ship, anchored in Port Townsend.
We had lunch at a "fast food" Thai restaurant, which provided huge portions at a great price. Afterwards, we walked through Pike’s Market then headed past the Ron Paul (Libertarian for President) event to Olympic Park. Opened in the past year, and part of the Seattle Art Museum, the park features huge art piece by prominent artists like Alexander Caldera and Claes Oldenburg.
Rich is helping me write this blog and he’d like to add that he’s bus-schedule challenged (we had to wait an extra half hour for a bus) and park-and-ride challenged (we went to the farthest possible park-and-ride in Kirkland, which added an additional 20 or more minutes to our ride).
Below are pictures from the day.
