My Vacation in Pictures- Seattle

 Here are some photos from our Seattle portion of our dream vacation. I'll try not to bore you with too many words.

One of the first things we did after we arrived and had lunch at Pike's Brewery and Pub, The Seattle Aquarium. The aquarium was really enjoyable, probably one of the best I've been to, not that I've been to a lot. I wish we could have gotten some pictures of the sea otters since I've not seen them in person before. I was surprised at how large they were compared to river otters.
Super cute river otter that put on a show for us. Unfortunately the show involved the large rock closest to us and marking his territory, if you know what I mean. Thank goodness  for the glass divider.

The under the dome portion of the aquarium. Simple yet super cool effect.
Pictures from my Sunday hike with Kay at Discovery Park.
Poor little abandoned rabbit population. I don't think I've ever lived anywhere that had a feral domesticated rabbit problem.
The shortest lighthouse I've ever seen.

I love the personality of the beaches in the Pacific Northwest. Such a huge contrast to what I am used to seeing on the gulf and east coasts.
Salmon going through the fish ladder at the Ballard Locks.
Sculpture at the Ballard Locks.
That is all for today of my super fabulous photos from the Seattle portion of our vacation. Next up will be photos of the Quinault Rainforest.
