Trip into Seattle

Here are some pictures of a trip Rebekah and I made into Seattle on September 23rd. We started by parking in the Pioneer Square district downtown - actually we parked on the street in a rather dodgy area adjacent to the Pioneer Square district.

Here's a picture of the street scene in this area:

We at lunch at a Brazilian steakhouse - this was a first for both of us. There was a large buffet of different vegetable-type dishes... pretty good. Then there were waiters that would come by periodically with different types of meat. The meat was presented on long metal on sticks. The meat is heavily salted and has a lot of garlic, and seems to be continuously roasting when the waiters aren't out offering it. When they do offer the meat, they begin the cut into the meat, then the diner takes a hold of the cut off meat with special tongs to hold the slice as the waiter finishes the cut. (I guess I should have taken pictures, as that description seems indecipherable!) Anyway, it was a totally new experience for us, but I have later found out that "Brazilian steakhouses" are not all that rare - I think there's probably one in Saint Louis.

We later walked a couple blocks down to the water and took a few more pictures looking off into Puget Sound.

At the end of the day, we hauled two tired youngsters back to the car in our double stroller. If you look closely, you can see that there is a leaf in Jacob's fist - he is quite the leaf collector!
