We learned the first Starbucks was in this area, so we decided to take a picture of it and when we got there we found it packed with a line out the door. In addition this two person street act, singing out difficult to describe music, and the gal would break out into some kind of dance on a three by three wooden stage that she had a cowbell and washboard attached to that she played in between her clogging. Actually, they were pretty darn good. Got a tip outta me.
There are many little alleyways, some with shops others are walkways, and of course others you quickly pass right by. I took this shot out of a window because the building below had some colorful but unidentifiable decor. We decided to go down and look at it more closely.
Well, it wasn't exactly what I expected; this one building wall was covered with chewing gum! Don't ask me? but it seemed that if you needed to dispose of your gum this wall was where you came to leave your deposit. Of course we obliged.
Seattle is an odd place; a place of high fashion for sure, as this picture attests to.
Of course it misted the entire time we were there, but in Seattle folks know how to dress for it. This was taken at Pikes Market area, a section filled with unusual shops, a farmers market, cobble stone streets and right on the edge of the bay.
