|I last went to Seattle in 2008. It's a great place to go whenever I feel like I've had enough of the Priuses and Whole Foodses of Southern California... and want to visit the Prisues and Whole Foodses of the Pacific Northwest.|
|Once again, I flew Virgin America. The Miami Vice lighting really helps assuage the anger of paying $25 to check a bag.|
|My new favorite sign: The Fish Ladder at the Hiram M. Chittenden (Ballard) Locks|
Though strictly speaking, this is a fish climbing stairs, not a ladder.
|We watched baby steelheads struggle to work their way up the fish ladder... and then later enjoyed a salmon dinner at Salty's on Alki Beach|
|This is Paul Sorey's sculpture entitled Salmon Waves.|
|There's nothing I enjoy more than a factory tour, so I made sure to hit the one at the Theo Chocolate Factory.|
|Did You Know: Chocolate bars are made up of 40% stone. Mostly pumice.|
