Pike's Place Market

After Steamers John and I walked up the Harbor steps to Pikes Place Market. Yet again another place John had never been. The market place was having a cheese tasting. We went from vendor to vendor to taste cheese of the world. John was in heaven. Me on the other hand, I am not a fan of cheese so it was just taking up valuable shopping time! The market was a mad house as usual but the sights and smells are always so intreging. What a beautiful day it was. No clouds, mild weather. Lots to do and see. After all the cheese I took him to the flying fish. What a sight. It is fun to see the guys throw the fish around and all the chanting they do. Tasting the smoked fish and checking out the huge lobsters and shrimp. John purchased some smoked salmon to take with us.

Of course I had to go to post alley and check out the fun shops there. I bought some Welsh Brew tea for my dad in a cute little tea shop.
