Folklife and Seattle, Day 2

Sunday, May 25, 2008

First thing this morning, we checked out of our hotel, as we decided to head home late Sunday night to have a full day at home on Monday. Here is Landon and Sam, taking our bags down to our car.

We were in no hurry to fight the crowds at Folklife again, so we decided to spend the morning at Pike Place Market and find the original Starbucks. Here we are, beneath the twin-tailed, bare-breasted sirens at the number one Starbucks, opened in 1971 at 2000 Western Avenue and moved to this location at 1912 Pike Place in 1976.

We spent the morning walking through Pike Place Market. Sam loved the Pike Place Fish Market, and we stopped there for awhile so he could inspect the fish for sale.

One of the friendly fishmongers stopped and chatted with me about Juniper's soft carrier. Then he went behind the counter and pulled the tail of a monkfish, causing its mouth to open as it was lifted up, which made Samuel laugh and laugh.

The tail of the monkfish is lying beneath the ice, so when it was pulled, there was no way for Sam to know how the fish was moving. Good times for a three year old at Pike Place Fish Market.
