I believe that's that air museum. Everything was closed by the time we got there but there were a few very cool planes outside that I took a bunch of pics of.

One of those was the Concord.

Yes it is. It's also Bill Boeing's original factory.

Looks like I'm late for the Seattle trip planning, but I don't believe anyone mentioned Ye Olde Curiosity Shoppe. They have a stuffed 2-headed black Angus calf and last time I was there offered head bobber toys of the same. Just about my favorite souvenir ever.

As far as things we'd like to do, well...we like food and art and quirky shit. We like tourist stuff, but we also like the stuff that isn't in the pretty brochure.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Gracias.
This is probably too late (hey, I just got here!), but how about flying home out of Portland? That way you don't have to drive back to Seattle, and you get to check out Portland, too, which is quite cool (Vancouver is just across the river from Portland).

Or were you talking about that other Vancouver?

Not at all. sycamore's post was dated 8-28-07. In it, he mentioned that he was planning a honeymoon. On Earth, most people plan honeymoons at least four months in advance.

How 'bout on your planet?

*ahem*

Welcome, Billy Rubin. sycamore's posts were of his honeymoon *IN SEATTLE* at the end of August. He and April, having planned their honeymoon long in advance, perhaps, four months or more, were finally doin' it, so to speak, as the later posts reveal.

As mentioned in the Happy Birthday thread, Tink celebrated her birthday with a party cruise! This is one of the shots of the city lights taken during the cruise, taken from the center of the ship canal, heading east.

In this picture, you're looking at two bridges, the Fremont Bridge, with the blue lights and operator towers on each side, and the George Washington Memorial Bridge, better known as the Aurora Bridge with the smaller yellowish streetlights.

The Fremont Bridge is a drawbridge, being so close to the water, it is necessary for the bridge to get out of the way of tall ship traffic, sailboats and other tall commercial vessels. The Aurora Bridge is *much* higher and is never in the way of marine traffic.

Underneath the bridges you can see the western side of Capitol Hill. If you look carefully at the city lights under the bridge, you can see a horizontal line of red lights. Those are cars on I-5.

I'm pretty happy with this picture. It was a long exposure and the sky turned out nicely, quite close to what it looked like in person.

It is Oyster Festival time again!

Tonight is the opening round of this year's competition. I am the reigning champion, and I intend to compete tonight at 6 pm at Chinook's on Nickerson at Fisherman's Terminal. I am undefeated in eight contests, prelims and finals in 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007.

I expect the same result of this ninth contest. I've asked Tink to be document the performance. The finals are at the end of the month. I'll report the results when I have them.

Wish me luck!

Competing -- was that in the shucking, or the eating? How did it go??
