Alaska - Day 14 - Seattle, Washington
July 2010
Despite the fact that we had an apartment instead of a hotel room in Fairbanks, we spent very little time there. In the very early (yet very light) hours of Day 14 we boarded a flight from Fairbanks to Seattle. Upon arriving in Seattle we went to Pike Place Market and then to the Space Needle. We walked around the waterfront and tried to see as much as we could in the less than 24 hours we had in the city. We ended the night with dinner of what else, but more salmon. The following morning we flew back to Philadelphia and reality.

25 Throwing Fish 26 Fish Head 27 Throwing Fish
Pike Place Fish Market is known for their employees' fish throwing skills.
Better than making fish head soup out of it, I guess.
It's hard to see but if you look to the lower left of the sign, you'll see a fish flying through the air.
