Pike's Place Market in Seattle




One of the places I like to frequent while in Seattle is Pike's Place Market. It draws thousands of visitors everyday, probably because it changes daily - vendors, entertainers, the flowers! Oh, the flowers - they are beautiful--and cheap! This time I resisted buying any (the last time I was there, I bought a beautiful arrangement just before leaving for the airport for my return flight and held it throughout the flight. They looked okay when I got them home, but it seemed the stress of the flight took away their longevity as they started wilting the next day), but that's not saying I didn't want some. I did connect with a new dish in a lovely Polish store! I would have liked to have purchased more than one, but managed to keep my wits about me.

I'm glad you kept your wits about you in the dish store--there's no telling the level of havoc that could have been wreaked if you would have lost your wits! Thanks for the lovely pics...I've only been to Seattle twice, but we've been to Pike's Place both times and I love it!
