Catherine and I had a chance to spend a several days in Seattle taking care of Stonerose and fire department business as well as a few personal chores. Getting by with a little help from our friends included our lodging on the waterfront of Elliott Bay seen in this image with Bell Harbor Marina as part of the front yard.
Seattleites’ like those of us residing in Ferry County, enjoy complaining about the weather but we found the daily sunny periods good chances to walk, cycle or capture a few photographs of the neighborhood as this one of dawn over the Olympic Mountains seen from our abode.
Enjoyed capturing this image of two of the Northwest's icons: a section of the Pike Place Market and one of the Washington State Ferries heading on a crossing to Bainbridge Island.
Catherine and I on the western Market Place stairs (and outdoor elevator) on one of the sunny afternoons.
Part of the Seattle waterfront seen from the Space Needle observatory. Looking closely one may note the Great Wheel just before the Ferry Landing. The commercial port area lays further south in the background of this image.
Another dawn on the waterfront of Elliott Bay looking into Bell Harbor Marina near a historical point of interest for any of us naval buffs. This sculpted tower, erected on National Maritime Day 1961, marks the spot where the U.S. Navy's "Great White Fleet" anchored in 1908 during their famous 46,000 mile world cruise.
