pictures from my weekend

These are pictures from Saturday in Seattle
this one is the of the north end of Pike Place Market
(Seattle's Public Market is the oldest and longest running farmer's market in the country)
This sign was made famous in the movie Sleepless in Seattle:


This is the sign at the south end of the market
the one you're more likely to see on a postcard:


All along the way, don't forget to look up:


And of course, inside the market, lots of good food:


Here we are (mom, sister and mom's good friend) enjoying a bite to eat:
(I am 2nd from the right)


Looking up again:



A good day to get married - no rain!
I have no idea who these people are - but isn't a cool place for wedding photos?
Some of those posters are VERY vintage (Rolling Stones for instance)


A back alley behind the Market:


And this is what we found there:


Yup, lot's of germy a.b.c. gum:


I couldn't have said it better myself:

Brings back SO many memories of Seattle. Of course, my memories include a tour of Red Hook Brewery. Never heard of The Pike!

Elizabeth was right: there is a bubble gum wall in Paso Robles. I enlarged the photo of the 4 of you and am wondering what the wires all of you have hanging around your necks are? Music? Cameras? Phones? Hmmmmm.
