What to do on a afternoon in Seattle.

Start your day with a 6 A.M. cup of strong Seattle coffee. One of my favorite parts about being here with my body still being on Indiana time. It’s no problem getting up at 5:30 and walking the 2 blocks to sip some hot coffee, read the paper and look out of the big plate glass windows to watch the world go by. It’s also good for the soul.

Try the Taco truck for breakfast and share a burrito as big as your head with your spouse.

You haven’t seen the real Seattle until you’ve visited the Troll under the highway 99 bridge.

Hurry up. I don't like this. That eye is creepy.

An afternoon trip to Fremont to see the Vladimir Lenin statue is always fun. On this day, he had blood (fake) on his hands. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statue_of_Lenin,_Seattle
If we ever decide to move to Seattle, the Fremont area is where I want to live.
