Pike Place Market

I finally got to Pike Place Market! This is one of my favorite places in Seattle, a place I always make sure to visit while I'm in town. It's hard to believe it took me 3 1/2 weeks to get there! I met up with June (my mom's cousin) and we walked around, saw the fish-throwers, looked at all the great little shops, and had Fish and Chips at the restaurant that's in "Sleepless in Seattle". It's the restaurant I usually try to eat in (if I'm not going to Ivar's on the waterfront) because it's good food, and I like Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan! It's the place where Tom Hanks and Rob Reiner sat and discussed Tom's love life. While walking around, I also decided to buy two watercolor prints that I REALLY enjoy, a slab of salmon to cook up at home, and a BEAUTIFUL bouquet of flowers that only cost $5.00! I love farmer's markets, and especially all the great colors from the fruit/veggie stands, and the flower stands.

This is a picture that's often turned into a postcard, but usually when there's more flowers out at that particular stand.

On my way home, I got to see an ENTIRE rainbow, but in the short time it took to whip out my camera, a cloud covered part of it. I also realized that it became a double-rainbow, but couldn't get a good picture of that. Thanks, God, for keeping your promise to us all these years!!

Hi Kari, thanks for the frequent updates. I love your blog.

I went to Ivar's in 1969 on a trip after I graduated from college! (I am giving away my age almost!)

Great pictures, as always.

Hey Kari! I love Pike Place Market too. I haven't been there in forever. Did you know that the employees of the place have a motivational video?? I saw it when I taught at Detroit Lakes.
