Now that my little spate of patriotism is over, and it's September (Happy Labor Day Weekend everyone! And YAAAAY to Monday being a holiday!), a little addendum to day we spent walking around Seattle. Aside from the cleanliness, as has been remarked upon by several people, there was a lot of artwork displayed in and around the city. They've also architected the city to be sort of artsy and functional at the same time. I took a bunch of random snapshots and decided to group them together in this entry.

Just look at this cool fountain:

More Lavender
The Pacific Science Center
Monorail coming into the station
Sculpture and building
Water sculpture - there's a walkway through the waterfall, so cool
Taking pictures of pig sculptures
Arrr Matey - Vin and Vincent and the Pirate Pig
Reminds me of the Walking Madonna at Salisbury Cathedral
Stairs down to the Waterfront, with artwork everywhere
Funky statue of Christopher Columbus
Ink drawing at Pike Place Market
Lil's Henna Tattoo
I think this is part of the Science Fiction Museum/Experience Music Project building

Just a little taste of the artsy sights of Seattle. Next we'll journey on to Vancouver.

OMG! That sculpture looks exactly like Christopher Columbus!

Isn’t he from Ohio or something? :-p
