Seattle Saturday, April 9, 2011   1 comment

We woke to the promise of what I assume would be a typical Seattle spring day – rain in the forecast.  My Deadliest Catch ‘stalking’ began in earnest – well between visiting the Seattle Aquarium, Pikes Place Eating Tour, Space Needle and dinner with NICET members. 

Deadliest Catch’s Northwestern and Wizard:  All three pictures were taken from our hotel balcony.  Pictures of the individual boats were taken with my cell phone’s camera. 

The Seattle Aquarium was nice.  Kay thanks for letting me tag along.  It’s hard not to compare it with Monterey Bay Aquarium.  I really liked the Ocean Oddities display.  You look at the fish in that tank and think “why”.  Watching the sea otters is always entertaining and the aquarium’s warm salt water fish and coral displays are beautiful.

Our next stop was Pikes Market for a tasting tour.  We had tastes from Daily Dozen Doughnut Company, Wild Harvest (Berries), Market Spice, Pike Place Fish Company (famous for throwing fish), Franks Quality Produce, Pike Place Chowder, Beecher’s (on site cheese  making), Pear Delicatessen & Shoppe and Etta’s .  This was a great experience that I’d suggest to anyone visiting Seattle.  On line food shopping is in my future!

Next stop was the Space Needle.  I’m not a huge fan of heights and get bored easily at observation decks.  The Space Needle is a view you will never forget!  We visited on a clear day (high clouds no haze), the mountains, the bay and even the surrounding buildings were beautiful.  Another must see Seattle experience!

We got back to the hotel with just enough time to freshen up for dinner.  Unfortunately we noticed the engines were running Captain and Crew stalking would NOT be on the activity list Saturday night.  This would be our last night with NICET board members and I don’t think they would understand staying at the hotel stalking The Deadliest Catch.  We enjoyed yet another great meal and great company with NICET board members.  Thanks Mike and Cherish for another well planned meeting.
