Space Needle

The Space Needle was built for the World's Fair held in Seattle in 1962.
The sky opened up, raining very large drops down upon our heads that morning; but on the way to the ship, it stopped..... and the skies slowly began to clear.
We boarded the Dawn Princess; and as we traveled out to sea, thru the Puget Sound, we went out onto our balcony and I started clicking away.....The sky was just beautiful! I love these pictures of the city, the space needle and those ominous skies.

Alaska here we come!

Pike Place Market

Look at these fresh vegetables! Be-u-tee-full! Fresh seafood and a "fish-throwin" show to boot!
This is Seattle's jewel of a farmer's market - Pike Place Market. Fresh flowers were everywhere!
Take a look: This was a dream come true for a girl born way south of the home of THE ORIGINAL Starbucks......Let's just say I caught a bad case of "sensory" overload!
.....And this was the very first day of our Alaskan Cruise Adventure!

On Top of Old Baldy is not covered with snow.....
...but a hill of rocks! All who reach the top of Old Baldy, are to bring a rock to put on the pile of rocks at the very top. Mel made it to the top first! You just wouldn't believe the view! On the way back down, a fellow "mountain climber" took a picture of the three of us-Barbara, Melanie and I. Look at the Frio River in the background...the emerald green water-it doesn't get more beautiful in Texas!
