I had no idea something likes this existed! Supposedly the constructions workers who built the bridge abutment on the north side of the HWY 99 Bridge had a LOT of extra concrete and created this structure. I kept hearing about it and decided to check it out for myself.
So yesterday I went to the world famous Pike’s Place Market. So a little information on it, it is a public farmer’s market that overlooks the Elliott Bay Waterfront. I went on a Friday afternoon and it was packed, there were so many people walking around and shopping. It was definitely a wonderful experience. You can buy things like fresh fish to handmade clothing and so much more. It was so much to take in, with all the stands and people I got lost a couple times! I got some fresh fruit and jerky and a couple pounds of salmon. Also I got to see the first Starbucks, I’m not much of a coffee person but I’m learning you can always find a coffee shop nearby in Seattle. I definitely enjoyed the day and I will definitely go again. Next up, the Fremont Troll!

My name is Brian and I’ve created this blog to tell of my adventures in Seattle. I got a job offer here in Seattle, so I moved on up from Utah. Seattle is completely new to me and to help adjust to the move and share my stories with my family I decided to create this blog! I want to share all my experiences with this great city to the world. I’ve only been here a week but I already love it.
Just another adventure and I can’t wait to share it with you all!
