Re:Stolid, Stoic, Standoffish, Scandinavian Seattle
Seattle: One of my favorite places in the USA and most of all, the Pike Place Market. That is a food and photographers dream with all the colors and smells. Roz and I also visited the original Starbucks and some Russian bakery jus t up the street. We bought oodles of fruits including way too many cherries (which were delicious but I regretted about a hour later) cheese, wine.

That was my one big disappointment in Seattle. I literally drove around for almost an hour, looking for a place to park. I went 3 or 4 blocks away and still didn't find an empty spot. Every meter was taken and no one was leaving. Next time I'll park a few miles away and take a bus!
The parking garage at Pacific Place which is at 5th & Pine is where we parked a few weeks ago. Easy walk to the Market!
One of my favorite things to eat at the Market are the bbq pork baked humbow and a fresh fruit smoothie at Mee Sum Pastry across from the main part of the Market. This place has been there since I was a teenager in the 1970s Delicious!! http://www.yelp.com/biz/mee-sum-pastry-seattle
