I meant to blog more over the weekend but I got distracted with other stuff (don’t even ask me what because I can’t seem to account for too much of the time, except I did watch 2 movies at home on Saturday night). But excuses aside, here’s the next part about our travels in the Pacific Northwest. We picked Lil up at the train station, and then turned in for the night. The next morning, we had breakfast and went off to see Seattle!
But on the way there, we saw a semi truck that was on fire (did Starscream manage to score a direct hit on Optimus Prime?). The EMTs were there and firemen were putting out the fire. I whipped out my handy dandy camera and got a quick shot of it but after the last of the flames were put out:
Then, our first glimpse of the Seattle skyline and the ever-recognizable Space Needle:

Our first stop: a scenic overlook.

Next, the Space Needle!
From the parking lot to the Space Needle, we passed by the Science Fiction Museum, so this shot is for you, Yope:

We didn’t go in though, Yope. So maybe when you come and visit me we can go? 😉 Here’s some more shots of and from the Space Needle:

Thanks to Vincent’s excellent planning, we were done with the Space Needle before the summer hordes could attack us. Plus we had a good parking space for an excellent rate (it turns out that due to the Bite of Seattle food fair, the parking rates went up later in the day!). Woohoooo!
I’ll stop here with some photostitching. I’ll be back with more Seattle fun later.
