Seattle, Washington

On our first day in Seattle we headed to the Pike Place Market. http://pikeplacemarket.org/  All I can say is I loved the flowers and fresh food.  I can easily say this is the largest market we have ever been too.  The colors and sounds were just mesmerizing.  I could have spent hours just walking around.

We made our way to Ivar’s http://www.ivars.com/ for some fried sea food.  The fish and clam strips were delicious.IMG_4430From there we made our way to the Space Needle.  It was very cool to see, but we decided to head the Pacific Science Center http://www.pacificsciencecenter.org/ with our museum pass.

The tropical butterfly garden was our favorite.  We spent a long time learning about the life cycles of the different moths and butterflies.  The large atlas moth does not have a mouth and therefore cannot feed. They live off the energy reserve that they obtained as a caterpillar. This means they do not live that long, generally only 5 to 7 days.

We participated in an eye opening activity that went right along with our study of nutrition. We chose foods to meet our daily needs with out too much fat or sugar.  You scanned the items as they went around on a conveyor belt.

We stayed at Thunderbird RV (a Thousand Trails campground) in Monroe, Washington.  It was about 40 miles from Seattle.  We rode bikes on two different days.  The first day we rode 18 miles and the second day Marcus and Caroline set a new distance record for them, 20 miles.  We were sure we even saw Mike Mulligan the steam shovel.  The bike trails in the Seattle area are awesome!
