These are some of my vacation pictures!

Taken in September, 2006

Presenting: Seattle

This is the Space Needle, built for the 1964 World's Fair.
It is 520 feet tall and it sways an inch for every 10 MPH of wind!
There is a revolving restaurant at the top. It was the second restaurant in the world to revolve. There is a monorail to carry passengers to and from downtown Seattle.

This is downtown Seattle, as seen from one of the many ferries.
Seattle Skyline

One of the many modern skyscrapers in downtown Seattle.
Seattle Building

This is the famous Pike Place Fish Market.
There is a great selection of fresh fish and other many other items.
It is also home to the world's first Starbucks, although I much prefer Seattle's Best brand of coffee.

These ladies were playing for tips at the Pike Place Public Market.
The quartet really packed a lot of punch in them fiddles!

This is a typical view looking west from downtown Seattle.
Seattle Building

This is the new ultra modern Seattle Public Library.
I guess the architect didn't like to use straight lines . . .

This has to be one of the most unusual parking structures out there.
A Triangular 4 story garage and each level has it's own entrance.
You cannot go up or down, only park on the floor where you go in.

There are many tulip farms just outside Seattle.
Field after field of brightly colored tulips.
These were adorning one of the many skyscrapers.
