A visit to Pike Place Market - 5

After a fine Sunday at the market, it was time for the trip home to Port Townsend. And there was our ferry easing into the Seattle terminal as we were making our way down Western Ave to hop aboard.

We finished our day with a fine dining experience at Etta's on Western. There are many good to excellent restaurants in or near the market, but when I want great seafood, Etta's is the place I rely on. In the dozen or so years it has been open, I've never been disappointed. This particular night the black cod was to die for and the salmon was perfection. Like all Tom Douglas restaurants in Seattle, Etta's is casual dining at its best.

You don't have the smallest ferries around. Seemed cosy taken like that.

What a big ferry boat! I love the colour of the sky. Have a nice weekend and see you next SWF! :-)

That looks like a Mississippi paddle wheeler. Nice shots.

I think this is my first trip to your blog in a while. I am in Brookville, Ohio and it is cold this morning – 13 degree Fahrenheit = -10.5555556 degree Celsius. If I were just walking past you on the street I would probably smile and nod my head. I hope you would too. LOL

Love the night shot of the ferry boat. I was on a different ferry to Whidbey yesterday. The mountains were beautiful. MB

The ferry looks great lit up at night.

Excellent light on the ferry photo. The sky actually cooperated and that is rare. Right place Right time and a good eye to get that shot. Thanks for the Pike place tour, I forget how much fun that can be.

That first shot is a purple rhapsody. Pike Street market does seem to have a great feel, not like big stores.
