DAY 6 OF MY "GREAT ADVNETURE"

TODAY I WENT DOWN TO THE PUBLIC MARKET AND DID LOTS OF SIGHT SEEING. AS USUAL THE MARKET WAS FILLED WITH TOURIST.....SO MUCH FUN TO WATCH!
I SPENT SOME TIME NEAR THE FISH THROWING AREA AS IT IS ALWAYS FULL OF TOURIST AND THE FISH GUYS ALWAYS PUT ON SUCH A FUN SHOW FOR EVERYONE. EVERY TIME SOME FISH IS ORDERED THE SELLER YELLS WHAT THE CUSTOMER WANTS AND ALL THE CREW SHOUT BACK WHAT HE JUST SAID. AND THEN THE SELLER THROWS THE FISH UP TO THE CREW STANDING UP BEHIND THE COUNTERS AND ONE OF THE CREW CATCHES IT IN PAPER READY TO BE WRAPPED AND SOLD. THE CROWD JUST LOVES THIS AND THERE ARE ALWAYS PLENTY OF CAMERAS AND VIDEOS GOING ALL THE TIME.
I HAD TO WALK THROUGH THE ISLES AND SEE ALL THE BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS FOR SALE. WHAT AMAZING COLORS AND SMELLS THERE ARE!
I WAS HARD NOT TO TAKE A FEW BOUQUETS HOME WITH ME. BUT MY TIME HERE IN BEAUTIFUL SEATTLE IS GETTING SHORT SO I DID SPEND QUITE A BIT OF TIME AT THE MARKET SEEING AS MANY SIGHTS AS POSSIBLE
SO AFTER MANY GREAT HOURS AT PIKE PLACE MARKET I HEADED BACK UP THE HILL TO THE CONDO AND SPENT A RELAXING NIGHT VISITING AND REMINISCING WITH SON ABOUT DAYS GONE BY.
