Here We Go Again…2013 Edition!

Thursday 20 June 2013

Or at least getting ready to go again.  We’ve arrived in Seattle, just need to put the bikes back together, pick up a couple of items then we will be ready to go.

Seattle is offering us the weather they are known for: overcast, cold and drizzly.  Walked the route we will take tomorrow to the train station, connecting us to our course, and managed a little sightseeing, along the way.  Did you know that UPS started in Seattle 107 years ago?  This park, in the middle of the city,was dedicated on their 100th anniversary.

Also visited another Seattle original, REI, celebrating their 75th year; their store here is Huge and filled with lots of Fun outdoor/adventure toys!

And no trip to Seattle is complete without a walk through the Market.  Even though we stopped here on our short visit during Trip II, the sites are still exciting and colorful offering a cornucopia of food beyond description.

And you simply cannot be in Seattle without having a Sourdough Bread bowl filled with incredible Seafood Chowder.

We savored every morsel, knowing that This trip will not be the tour of incredible food and wonderful hotels along the Sea, but more of camping and dehydrated food. But not today!

After spending way too much time on our feet, we head back to the room only to find our wonderful hotel (Thank you, Steven and Sheraton) has left a Perfect treat in our room.

So the bikes are put together, duckies are on board and we are chomping at the bit to start our ride.  Hope to see you along the way.
