Seattle Vacation: Pike’s Place Market & Seattle Underground Tour

I got to Pike’s Place Market at least decently early enough that the tourist crowds hadn’t started forming yet. I wandered a bit before spotting the original Starbucks and starting out my morning with a tall mocha. I then wandered some more until I figured out which stand was the one that threw fish around. …
