Yesterday we made it to Kirkland, which is North of Seattle. This is where Ryan's family is based. There were great bike lanes in and around Seattle so it was a great ride into town. Once we made it about half way through town and then wove through some city streets we found a great,but hilly bike path around lake Washingtion to our destination. The night before, we camped in a small grove of trees in the industrial area of town. Our muscles are sore, our joints ache and we are having the time of our lives. Last night we took our first shower since Sunday. It was much needed.
We spent the day in downtown Seattle at The Pike Street Market, the Space Needle, and went to the Experience Music Project Museum. It was great to see some tourist spots that I had never seen before. The Market was wonderful! We made a point of watching the fish throwers for a while and walking all the levels. The Experience Music Museum was full of surprises that we didn't expect to see at all.On top of music they had exhibits about Sci-Fi pop culture and a guest exhibit about Jim Hensen and his many puppets.
