We took off on the first leg of our journey with Joel and Barbara Stark and arrived in Seattle at noon west coast time. After arriving at the Westin Seattle we headed down to Pikes Market (pictured left) for a look. BA and I had been there a few years before and it is really worth a look. Dinner was at the Westin where Joel and I both had Dungeoness Crab with mac and cheese, Barbara had the scallops on avocado and BA had chicken. We headed for a nightcap looking forward to the exciting voyage ahead on HollandAmerica’s Westerdam.
