Seattle Part 3- Pike Place Market, and Ferry to Bainbridge Island

After a very nice breakfast, we wandered into the maze of the famous Pike Place Market. This is one of those places where you never know whether you have seem it all as there is so much of it and lots of passages and corridors hidden here there and everywhere. A labyrinth. We spent at least two hours there and could have spent the whole day, especially if you were in the mood for shopping, as there was everything from fresh fruit and vegetables, fish and many other kinds of foods, as well as jewelery, pottery and other craft type stalls. Amazing.

We had decided to take the ferry to Bainbridge Island for lunch, and unfortunately just missed one, so ended up with a shorter time there, but the views of Seattle skyline from the ferry were really good.

We had to rush a bit back from the ferry, and caught the Monorail once again to the Seattle Center, this time to see 'Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince' in the IMAX theatre. We did however sit for almost an hour while they had to fix something before the film actually started. The first part of it was 3D which was really excellent.

Back on the Monorail, we ate another superb meal in Place Pigalle and then a glass of wine at the very eclectic The White Horse Trading Company - wine, beer and books!
