Alaska Cruise (one day before) -- A Sunny Day in Seattle

Alaska's State FlagWe now have all our luggage and it's a sunny, warm day in Seattle. The TV news says it's the first day this spring to reach 70 degrees and by the look of the streets and parks lots of Seattle folks took the day off.

We took a taxi to Pike Place Market and it was shoulder-to-shoulder in there. We found a cafe in the rear of the marketplace and saw Celebrity Infinity docked at the downtown cruise ship terminal.

This is our ninth cruise and the first time that we have had to fly to the cruise port. In the past we have taken the car and spent a night or two on the way to the ship. Flying adds another complication to the adventure and especially to the packing for the trip.
