Crispy decided that it might be fun to eat lunch in the Space Needle. Other than feeling sick from moving while eating and riding the crazy elevator down, it was pretty awesome.

This photo was actually taken after lunch, but I’m going to post it first, so you can see how high up we were.

This is what the view looked like when we first got up to the top:

You sit on the part that spins around and the wall next to you doesn’t move. Kathleen is actually slowing moving backwards:

It was really cool to watch the fog burn off as we spun around the city:

The food was really really really yum. My mouth is watering just thinking about it…

Even the butter looked pretty:

Kathleen says “stop taking my freaking picture so I can eat my sandwich:”

People put notes on the ledge so there was always something new to read. First, stating the obvious:

Something a little more clever, I guess:

We never found out if we won or not:

Ah, everyone’s favorite city…Hawaii:

The sky getting clearer and bright blue:

Afterward we went out to the observation deck to look around Seattle. We took our photo in the reflection and suddenly everyone around us was going “that’s the coolest thing ever!” and doing the same thing. It was really weird.

Beware of the Fremont Troll. He eats people.

Auto-correct is funny:

Fun times.

Although we drove across a bridge to get to the Olympic Peninsula, we took the ferry from Bremerton to get back to Seattle. I’m a little iffy on boats – I get motion sickness in a serious way. I’ve found that being outside is better than being inside, so we rode on the outside part. Unfortunately, it was freezing. But it was totally worth it. Crispy planned it so that we were on the ferry as the sun was setting.

Mount Ranier:

Another ferry heading in the opposite direction:

We could see jellyfish under the water, it was pretty cool (not pictured, so don’t look too hard):

I was really worried this guy was going to poop on my head. Luckily he didn’t:

I have the best friends in the whole world. They stood in front of me to block some of the wind since I was freezing and couldn’t be inside:

So pretty!

Getting into Seattle:

I was torn between posting the pictures from my Seattle/Washington trip and the pictures from my New England/Fall trip. In the end Seattle won, partly because it happened first, but mostly because I forgot I already did the majority of the editing a couple of months ago. I’m going to post them somewhat out of order, and possibly backwards. I haven’t totally decided yet.

Here is one of my favorite views of Seattle:

And here are a few from further down Alki Beach, a little bit earlier:

I’m going to do my best to get them all up before the end of the year so I can move on to New England photos.
