No trip to Seattle would be complete without a visit to Pike Place Market. Similar to Haymarket in Boston, but permanent and indoors.

Ooooh, veggies.  (Very colorful)

Now, one of the major "attractions" at Pike Place Market is the flying fish. Yes, I said the flying fish. I am embarrassed to say that I can't recall the name of the vendor, but don't forget to duck!  Here is a 10 second video of the 'event'... but be warned: It's in the latest windows Media format, and it's about 1.5 Meg... so be prepared to wait if you're on a dialup connection to the 'net.

The next day was Father's Day, and it was a georgeous day.   We took a little side trip after lunch at Mukilteo Beach, and found this little public beach overlooking the Sound. Ivars' Clams looked great, but the dietary budget didn't allow for such indulgence.... only because we had just finished lunch!
