Seattle: Day Three-Space Needle, Island, Ferry!

On the third day of our Seattle trip Jenifer and I had another jam-packed day! To start out the day we rode the train into town, then took a bus, THEN took a monorail to go visit the space needle! On our way up to the top they make you stand in front of a screen and take your picture so that they can put a background behind you to make it look like you're standing in front of the space needle. It's pretty much the worst picture of me ever-but for posterity, here you go:

Don't you just love the green around our heads where they photoshopped us in? It looks completely awesome, I know ;) The Space Needle on one side of us, and Mt. Ranier on the other.

After the space needle Jenifer and I had to make it from the middle of the city all the way to the waterfront to catch a ferry on time. It was my first time on a ferry and I'm pretty sure I loved it. The wind was insane and the view was absolutely spectacular. On one end of the ferry we could see the Seattle skyline, and on the other side was Bainbridge Island!

The water looked very seafoam green as we pulled into Bainbridge to dock. It was the prettiest color!

It's a good thing I was wearing my tennis shoes because we basically had to run for a half an hour with all of our stuff from the middle of the city to the waterfront to catch our ferry-we ended up getting there and getting a ticket and loading onto the ferry with only a few minutes to spare! Needless to say, we earned our lunch that day!

While on the island we did all sorts of popping into little shops, eating at the most adorable (and delicious) cafe, and just having fun hanging out together! The place we ate was called the Blackbird Cafe. For lunch we had flatbread pizza with zucchini and sundried tomatoes-mmmmmmmm!

Then for dessert we decided on cherry almond coffee cake that was TO DIE FOR. That place was full of fun and delicious sounding desserts, like blackberry walnut pie-doesn't that just sound pretty? Sigh...
Here is the coffee cake:

After getting back to our aunt and uncle's home we had the best time preparing supper and eating out on their deck full of hummingbirds, plants, and the best air I've ever breathed. Love them so much :D

Psalm 147:1
Praise the LORD. How good it is to sing praises to our God, how pleasant and fitting to praise Him!

God Bless!
