Thank you John for getting me your friend's suggestions for restaurant recommendations, I checked many of them out....

First of all, seafoood...need I say more?

2nd, micro brews.

3rd ... coffee....

Salmon, crab and oysters....woooo hooooo

Oh, the 'Experience Music Project' museum, up near the needle...pretty cool.

Big Hendrix display...for example, the gear he used at Woodstock and The Monterey Pop Festival...

The actual white Strat he used at Woodstock is there on display, really cool.

Oh and the Clapton Strat... 'Brownie' or 'Old Brownie'...the actual guitar used on Layla...proudly displayed there....again, really cool.

I had a great time in Seattle, really cool city.

I visited Seattle a few years ago and really enjoyed the city. Started in Vancouver and worked my way down. Unfortunately when I went to the EMP the Hendrix exhibition was under reconstruction so most of the stuff was in storage. Worthwhile visit nonetheless. Also be sure to take the Underground City tour and check out Pikes Market.

I visited Seattle back in 70 , actually a town called Belling ham.. from there we headed to Vancouver BC.. and hit Gas Town... it was great back in those days.. I have no idea what it is like today... lets face it that was 40 yrs ago. I also went up in the Space Needle which had a revolving restaurant up there... amazing views... But nothing could compare to Vancouver... breathtaking.... I always wanted to return there.. who knows maybe one day...

I was working on a job in Townsend, and drove up to Seattle to go to an antique show and sale at the Kingdome. Beautiful country.

I read a supposed quote by locals where they sometimes say, "hey look, our mountain is out today"

And I didn't really know what that meant until one day when it WAS out.

Very cool, not something one sees every day....at least this "one"

Seattle is a FANTASTIC city! As a born and bred-life-long southerner, Seattle (and San Francisco) are about the only cities outside the south where I feel like I could live.

And it's Bellingham (one word) - a great little town - about as far north as you can go before getting into Canada. If you find yourself there, go to Orcas Island (or any of the San Jaun Islands). Enjoy the breathtaking beauty and as touristy as it sounds - go out on one of the whale watching tours. "Free Willy" don't belong in no tank in Orlando, Florida! Go out on one of the boats and SEE these fantastic creatures in their natural habitat! Bald Eagles everywhere! Like pigeons in NYC!

I'm glad you had a good time Don. Glad you were happy with her suggestions. I will pass that on back to Cindy. Man, when I read seafood, I could just about smell it...........we are working on a trip up to Cape Cod in June. Looking forward to a few buckets of steamers, and some lobsters.

Where I lived in Townsend, you had a clear view of Mt. St. Helens, about 40 miles away. I lived there 3 months before I knew that, though, because that is how long it was before there was a clear day on a weekend so I could see it.
