Water

It is impossible not to connect with water somehow in Seattle. The city nestles next to Puget Sound, and in some instances, like our hotel the first night, it is actually built on top of the water.

Water? No problem. Sunshine? You might have to imagine it a little bit.

We woke before dawn, the three hour time change still strong in our bodies. I couldn’t resist taking a picture of what I saw to the south.

An hour later and you could see…

And finally, at 9 a.m., there was the ferris wheel. Trust me, if it hadn’t been so cold and damp, I would have been on it.

Our room was on the first floor. ย This hotel is famous for the Beatles staying there waaaaaay back when, and fishing directly from the room. Open the window and you are immediately living amongst the gulls, terns and other waterfowl…

…and if you don’t like looking at the water from one place, you can always take a ferry boat to somewhere else!

Like I said…water is everywhere in Seattle.
