Seattle Waterfront

I’m an eastsider. Just about the only time I venture into Seattle is when we have guests in town. And since my parents were in town, we decided to head downtown to check out the “new” Ferris wheel. We started at Pike Place Market, walked down to the carousel, rode the Ferris wheel and then finished up with lunch at Anthony’s fish bar. Elijah woke up really early that morning but he did a great job even though he got a late nap. He was a little nervous in the Ferris wheel but ended up doing fine. We had never eaten at Anthony’s fish bar and only chose that because Ivar’s was closed during the construction on the waterfront, but I think we’ll go back. The food was good and they validated our parking for the parking garage at the art institute. Good deal!
