A Day in Seattle

I’m testing how Windows Live Writer works to see if I can use it on our next trip.  Ha!  Here’s a map feature!

On Tuesday we took the bus into Seattle for the afternoon.  We rode the Lake Union trolley to see where it goes.  It’s a short ride down to the new park on the edge of Lake Union.  There’s lots of building going on around there, new tech office buildings, apartments and restaurants.  It’s “not quite there yet” but it won’t be long before it’s a vibrant part of the city.

We walked around down town and, as you can see from these pictures, it was a beautiful day.DSC03752

We went to the Seattle Art Museum to see the Picasso Exhibit.

The Hammering Man is outside the museum.  And the cars hanging from the ceiling are inside the museum.  No pictures were allowed in the Picasso show.

 

 

We headed home, into the bus tunnel…….

It was a lovely fall day.
