The other highlight is their concrete dome aquarium. Must have been a bee-otch to build...
One of my favorite shots: a string of Nomads
Next stop: Pike Place Market. After standing amongst the other tourists and gawking at the antics of the fish mongers, we finally stepped up and bought some live mussels. We steamed them as a late afternoon meal and they were insanely good!
