On to Seattle!!!

Sunday, July 24th, 2011:

Left Tacoma around 1:30 p.m. and travelled to a Lynnwood Holiday Inn Express, just a few miles north of Seattle, where I planned to spend Monday and Tuesday. That evening, ate at the Old Spaghetti Factory, which was right next door to the Holiday Inn.

Went on the Argosy Harbor Cruise, which took about an hour, making its cruise around Elliott Bay. Lots of interesting sights and information!

This photo is of a neat fountain, right next to the Argosy departure building:

Here's a sight of the Seattle skyline, taken from the cruise boat (it was kind of an overcast day):

After I got back from the cruise, I had intended to visit SAM, the Seattle Art Museum (I had loved it when I was here in 2004), but, unfortunately, it was closed Monday and Tuesday!!!! Rats!!!

Since I had this time, then, I decided to ride the monorail from the downtown area to the Seattle Center; this took only a couple of minutes. Then I went up the Space Needle and took a bunch of photos:

Finally, a kind of weird photo of me, supposedly in front of Seattle's skyline, but really taken inside the Space Needle (provided free with admission to the Space Needle):
