Back Yard Tourist

I don't know if I've ever mentioned it, but JB is Canadian. This week we have his niece and her kids visiting for a few days. They have never been out of Canada! At least not the kids. So, JB & I took a vacation day and packed it full of "touristy" stuff.

We went to the International Fountain at the Seattle Center.

Then we rode the Monorail to Westlake Center for shopping.

From there we walked down the hill to the Pike Place Market.
and checked out the gum wall. We took the monorail back to the Seattle Center. Went to the top of the Space Needle. Ended the day with dinner at the Spaghetti Factory. All photos are stock online photos - will post some that JB took later in the week.


  1. It's fun to play tourist sometimes. It's amazing how often people fail to visit the famous attractions right in their own community.

  2. It's fun to play tourist in your own area every now and then!

  3. That's very nice! I'm sure they enjoyed the tourist routine; hope the weather cooperated for you.

  4. Touring even in one's own area is fun. Thanks for sharing the pics.

  5. Amazing what is in your own backyard, isn't it ?

  6. What fun!! Can't wait to see "your" photos...


I appreciate you coming to see me. It may take me a bit to publish your comment - but I will get to them by the end of every day. If you leave a way for me to get back to you, I will. Thanks for taking the time to comment and share your opinions. g
