When people visit Seattle they go to the Space Needle, the Aquarium, Pikes Market, they might even ride The Great Wheel.
But just like every city, the locals know the best spots!
So we introduced my sister and great-niece to...
The Fremont Troll!
He lives under a bridge just north of downtown.
And yes, he's clutching a real volkswagen bug in his left hand.
Next we were off to the Gum Wall! Rachel said she heard of one in another city but she's never seen one. It's exactly what it sounds like, where people come from all over to put some gum on the infamous wall. I don't know how often, but occasionally the city will close it down and clean it off, then it begins again!
And yes, she came prepared!
There were fireworks at our next door neighbors on July 4th; we took a ride on the ferry across Puget Sound; drove up to Snoqualmie Falls; took Nala to Dog Beach... and also spent a lot of time at home, playing games and talking by the fire.
We had such a great time. It was hard to say goodbye!
