Seattle and the King Tut exhibit

A fun family trip to Seattle right before Memorial Day weekend . . . we stayed at Inn at  the Market, right on the waterfront in front of Pike Place Market, spent an entire afternoon at the Seattle Aquarium, and saw the King Tut exhibit at the Pacific Science Center.  On our last day, instead of driving home via I-5, we caught the morning ferry to Bainbridge Island – one of my favorite places in the world! – and spent a fun morning in Winslow, shopping and breakfasting, before driving home down the Olympic Peninsula.
