Olympia to Seattle : 24 August 2001

Into Seattle today and we both liked it straight away. Had a bit of a palaver getting into the hotel (with nowhere to  park the car) then finding Alamo to return the car. I was really, weirdly, sad to leave it. It sort of felt like home. 

Went for lunch then got the monorail to the Space Needle, which was fabulous – David was a bit freaked out because we could feel it moving. Seattle looks beautiful – a bit like San Francisco, but with sun. 

Walked back to downtown and along the promenade. Went through the fish market and back to the hotel. It’s very basic, but cheap. Went to see Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back and then to a McD’s that had a fish tank with what looked like a cross between a fish and a snail in it. Very weird.
