Seattle-Day 3

Sherry & Amy at UPS Park
UPS started in Seattle
We started the day with another scrumptious breakfast.  We decided to take a quick 1.5 hour bus tour of Seattle to see such important sites as Seattle Grace Hospital (Grey's Anatomy fans will recognize the name), the Sleepless in Seattle house, the boats from Deadliest Catch, and that important type of stuff.  The tour bus came and picked us up at the B&B and held us captive for THREE hours.  It was a reminder of why we don't do tours:):)  Apparently, the 1.5 hour tour did not fill so they put us on this one without letting us know.   We learned some interesting stuff but the tour driver talked non-stop the whole time and it was just exhausting to listen to him:)  We finally bailed about noon.

We headed back to the Pike Street Market for lunch at Pike Place Chowder.  It was on our Savor Seattle tour as one of the best chowder spots in Seattle.
 Stopped in at Starbucks (The Mother Lode) for some souvenirs. Walked around the market again to make sure we hadn't missed anything and to look at the flowers one last time.

Seattle Skyline from Ferry
For our big adventure of the day, we took the ferry to Bainbridge Island.  Lots of fun and had a great view of the Seattle skyline.  Before returning on the ferry, we walked into Bainbridge for coffee and browsing in the neat shops.

On the ferry.
When we got back, we gave Sherry a break and took the #10 bus back to 15th Street near the B&B.  Dinner was at the great little neighborhood cafe we saw on Sunday.  Best meal we had in Seattle!!!
