Day 175—The Public Market without the Bustle

Friday was the last day of our Pacific Northwest adventure. We awoke early to bleak skies and rain in Seattle. I looked out the window of our room to see the empty streets and the empty Pike’s Public Market. It had not yet come to life and the fish, vegetable, and flower vendors were just starting to stock the tables and display cases with local catches and harvests. The market would come to life later with hordes of tourists and shoppers crowding the stalls but we were long gone when that happened. It was interesting to see the emptiness of the market at that early hour. I’m glad the bustle and excitement of the place had not yet begun because that it made it easier for us to leave.

I took this photo leaning out the fourth floor window of our room at the Inn at the Market. And, yes, we could open the window and there were no screens. How refreshing. I leaned a little too much to the left so I had to straighten it just a bit.
