This past weekend, my husband and I had a visit from Flat Luke, our grandnephew from Maryland. Just like Flat Stanley, Luke had an accident that "flattened" him and he is now able to mail himself around the world.
We took Flat Luke to the UW campus where he met the Husky mascot.
Next, we went to Ivar's Salmon House where he ate clam chowder and saw totem poles.
Then it was on to Fremont where he saw the troll, admired lots of the public art,
went to the Fremont Sunday Market and sampled chocolate at Theo's.
After that we headed downtown so Luke could view the Space Needle, visit the Pike Place Market,
have a hot chocolate at the original Starbuck's,
make an addition to the gum wall
and ride the Great Wheel.
We ended the day at the Woodland Park Zoo, wishing that we had the time to show Luke more of Seattle but we had to mail him off to Buffalo for more adventures.
My goal was to walk every public street in the city of Seattle. Four years after starting I have logged 2,722 miles and completed the goal. The orange and red areas on the map reflect the neighborhoods I walked. Brown areas represent some private roads and properties I did not walk.
A list of some of my favorite discoveries and an index of walks by neighborhood can be found in the March 2015 posts and in the very bottom post June 8, 2010.
