Seattle

We took a travel to Seattle first time. It was also first challenge for us to drive long time with our little daugter. Actually it took 8.5hours one way by car. I was almost worn-out...

First evening in Seattle, we watched MLB game Mariners vs. Giants. Japanese player(Ichiro & Jojima) did very well, so we were really excited. That was nice game, and Mariners won by 5-4. Though I saw Bonds's home run, I was surprised by the boo for him.



Next morning, we went the market in the downtown. There were many shops; seafoods,fruts, vegetables etc. They all looked fresh, so we bought some.

We also enjoyed stylish cafe, it was good time for us.



Next, we went the aquarium. I was glad to see the chinook salmon in a glass tank. Unfortunately we couldn't see that they are going upstream.

This photo is fish ladder for them. Can they go up really?

シアトルは是非一度訪ねてみたいところ。
MTBのトレイルとかも充実してるみたいよ。
いい試合が見れてよかったね。

日本では交流戦が終わりました。
またロッテが優勝かっさらっていったよ。
阪神は打線がアキマヘンな。久保田も骨折したし。
そろそろ日本のプロ野球も恋しくなったきた?

シアトルは今後も何度か行ってみようと思います。植生も久しぶりに青々とした山々を見たって感じで、確かにいいTrailありそうでした。近郊にNational Parkもあるので、次回はCampingと兼ねて行ってみたいです。

ロッテ相変らず強いね。中日も頑張ってるね。阪神の奮起に期待ですかね。

Thank you for your advice, yokoyam3. I revised them. By the way, how's your fishing going so far?
