Day 3: Tacoma

July 31st, 2008

Crispy was really excited to go to the Glass Museum in Tacoma today…

Unfortunately we weren’t allowed to take pictures in the museum, except for the part where we got to see them make glass:

Some wonderful person took up more than one space, but Crispy’s exceptional parking skills and short car came to the rescue:

We toured the Zoo/Aquarium combo. Meercats…


Beluga Whales smile:

Walruses are biggish:


Crispy goes for a swim:



Pictures are here. Tacoma is neat. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I REALLY want the flu. It is so cute:


Today we took the bus downtown and went to the Space Needle:

My sister moved to the area recently so we got to hang out with her crazy self:

Me and the L:

The EMP designed by Gehry:

We got to ride a monorail!!!!

Pike Place Market is visually awesome AND I got orange creamsicle tea!

this is where they throw the fish, which we witnessed but did not capture on “film”

we came across this randomly:

Tomorrow we visit Tacoma! Zoo! Aquarium! GLASS MUSEUM! Pizza!!!! Screw you texas, I’m not coming back!!!

I’m in Seattle at the moment, visiting my wonderful friend Crispy. I watched the sun rise at the airport and am a little fuzzy at the moment (and all day).

We went to the Arboretum:

Took pictures of moss…

and trees and stuff…

saw some gorgeous hydrangeas…

and these;

here we are:

Crispy waits for the bus:

not in texas anymore…

i’m too tired to link to the pics so if you want to see them bigger/in more detail they are here.
