Seattle is a great city when so many attractions are easily within walking distance for those who can hoof along their day like we like to do. Know your tastes and do alittle research before arriving so you don't waste time getting from point A to point B on your walkabout Seattle. Here's Day 1 of our 2 Days to give you ideas to add to your Seattle Itinerary.
I call this cyclops:
Wonderful green sea anemone and starfish.
First time I've ever seen a Giant White-Plumed Anemone. Pretty!
West Atlantic Trumpetfish
This guy sticks out... a warty sea cucumber!
This Fish and Bay Pipefish sure camouflages well.
Anyone know what this guy is?
First time, we've ever seen a Wolf Eel was at the Seattle Aquarium.
The biggest octopus I've ever seen.
That's Olympic National Park in the distance which would've been wonderful to explore if we had more time in the area. "Encompassing nearly a million acres, the park protects a vast wilderness, thousands of years of human history, and several distinctly different ecosystems, including glacier-capped mountains, old-growth temperate rain forests, and over 70 miles of wild coastline." –National Park Service
Found an arcade!
Around Miner's Landing
Bravo to the talented wood carvers who adorned this area with their work.
A visit to Seattle wouldn't be complete without to First & Pike... shopping and snacks!
Snacking up... well deserved after all the walking. The problem: which one to choose?
