Our Alaskan Cruise

Woke up way to early, but very excited. Our Uber drive picked us up at 6:30am and drove us to John Wayne Airport. Our flight left at 8am and then we changed planes in Sacramento. Southwest is a pleasure to fly. When we landed in Seattle, we got our luggage and then Uber drove us to our hotel, The Mediterranean Inn. Once we checked in and dropped off our luggage, we walked up the block to find some lunch. We ate at the Mecca Cafe. I had a burger and Terry had a club sandwich. The food was ok. Service was nice. Back at the hotel we relaxed in our room and then called Uber for a ride downtown. There was a HUGE gay pride celebration and we loved these cross walks.

When we were wandering around, admiring all the rainbow flags, banners and smiling people we came across Uncle Ike’s Pot Shop. How interesting, legal marijuana just sitting on shelves for all the world to see. You showed proof of age to a guard and then inside was a stand with menus on it. The different “strands” and a wide variety of edibles was really interesting. When we called for Uber our driver said he came to this location all the time, often with people who just got off a plane. Who knows, CA may be next?!?

Eventually we returned to our room and visited the roof top deck. It is very nice and Terry took some great pictures.

As you can see, the Space Needle is very close to our hotel. And we could see Mt. Rainier.

Hungry again we walked around and ended up at T.S. McHugh’s. This is an Irish Pub. They hand make pot pies, but $20 seemed too much for something that might not live up to its reputation. Terry had a seafood salad with excellent scallops. I had a Ruben. We both enjoyed our meals. My french fries were extra good.

We went back to the deck to take sunset pictures.

Now we are back in our room for the evening. Tomorrow we plan to take our time, boarding is not till 1pm or so. This trip is off to a good start.
