Colourful goodies

We crossed the border early, and then drove down the freeway into the the “Evergreen State” of Washington USA. The mountains were shrouded in grey blue mist, but the clouds lifted as we reached Seattle.

We walked through the colourful food and artisan stalls of Pike Place Market.

We learned some fascinating and colourful history about the founding and building of Seattle on the Underground tour, and then we took a trip on the mono rail to the Space tower. We enjoyed more eyefuls of colour at the Dale Chihuly glass exhibition and were excited to find the artist himself sitting in the restaurant where we stopped to eat. His creations are jaw droppingly beautiful.

    Amazing glass work….So good to be able to hear of your journeys each day

  2. Why doesn’t Wimborne Market ever look so exciting? Did you resist buying a beautiful glass object? I know I would have received a long lecture on how difficult it would be transport etc etc but think I would still have been sorely tempted!
