First, a visit to the Space Needle. Recently it had it's 50th birthday.
It was a hazy day but the views were still beautiful from the top.
For lunch we headed to Ivars Fish Bar under the I-5 bridge in the picture above. Here we found a duck couple sunning themselves and enjoying the view of Lake Union. This is the female.
The Space Needle sporting it's new paint job. The top was painted its original color for it's 50th anniversary.
The otters are my favorites. The aquarium even has a couple of otter cams.May 15
We arrived in time for a front row seat for the feeding of the seals. They have 2 Harbor Seals and a Northern Fur Seal. Photographing them through the chain link fence was a bit of a challenge. This particular day was dental checkup day.
Finally, the River Otters. My nemesis. They look so innocent but they are really stinky, destructive creatures.
Last stop of the day: Pike Place Market.
I don't know about you but I'm whooped. I hope you enjoyed your tour of Seattle.
