50 or so days out of the year you can see Mt. Rainier. On those days it fills the skyline directly behind Safeco Field. Yesterday was not one of those 50 days. I also gotta say Space Needle, would a little signage telling me what I am (or am not) looking at kill you? I'm just saying.
So there's a monorail (monorail!), and people do seem to loves them some monorail. And by people, I mean the two ladies (at the airport and Space Needle respectively) who told me it was pure folly to walk to Pike's Place Market. I was really better off taking the monorail. Monorail! Monoraaaaaaail!
Yeah, its a 15 minute walk. What to the ever.
Of course I went to the fish market. There were fish. They were flung.
Next year I'll have to plan an over night so I can do the Experience and Science Fiction museums. The fact that there's currently a Jim Henson exhibit on any added to my bitter pants.
Muhnuh muhnuh, indeed.
Two things I did not know about Seattle. They don't support boiling lobsters, and non-earth life forms are not permitted to use the rest rooms at Seatac.
