Alaska Cruise – Day 1

We got up pretty early, finished the last of our packing, and then took the shuttle to the airport to catch our flight to Seattle. The flight was pretty uneventful, and we arrived on-time to a refreshingly cool PNW afternoon. After meeting up with Sandy and David, we hiked across what felt like the entire airport property in order to get on the light rail train in to town. We got checked in to the hotel, dropped our bags, and then headed out to get some food and do some shopping.

After a quick stop at Target to get David some sunglasses, we headed out to grab some dinner. We were initially planning on heading to an Irish pub we found on-line, but decided that it was too far, so we popped in to Pike Brewing Company instead. It really wasn’t a bad choice as the beer was excellent and the food even better. Reese even tried the steamed clams and liked them. After that, walked around some of the Pike Place Market, doing some nosing around and shopping.

After that, we went back to the hotel and settled in for the evening. We’re going to do more touristy stuff tomorrow.
