Obligatory Space Needle photograph. We were fresh off the plane and couldn't check in yet, and so we wandered… …wandered right into Bite of Seattle, a food festival. Unfortunately (and maybe we just hit the wrong stretch) it seemed to exclusively be selling corn dogs. Not that I am knocking corn dogs. especially after plane food. Spray-on tattoo booth. Once we were allowed to check in, this was our view over Lake Union. We spent the rest of the afternoon lounging and watching the sea planes take off and land. Jet lag has never been treated better. These blue skies were a nice break from Beijing. Sea plane touchdown.
