I've seen this sign in so many places. On flickr, in the movies. I couldn't wait to photograph it. It was surreal standing there in front of it. It had been a dream of mine to go to Seattle for many years. Unfortunately, since I am vertically-challenged and since it was crowded, I never did get a clear shot of it. But that's okay.
The flowers in Seattle are absolutely stunning. These beautiful bouquets were only $10.00 each! If I lived there, I would have fresh flowers every week.
We went to the original Starbucks. It seemed only fitting since my sister-in-law and I had our first chai tea together. We didn't even know what it was at the time! Now we are both hooked! I couldn't get many pictures of the Starbucks since it was so crowded and the lighting was bad inside the store. I did get this picture of the original logo. When the logo first came out, it was controversial because the mermaid is topless. What I want to know is why is her tail split in two? Did she have a combination of tail and legs?
