The Duck Tour

We got to Seattle at 4:00 and hit the ground running.  Not enough time left to tour the EMP, but since we could see the Duck Tours from our hotel window that seemed a good place to start.

It drives my sons crazy, but I can't resist the cheesy tourist photos.

I think we had the wackiest, or quackiest, tour guide.  You don't go on these tours to be serious, folks.

So here are some Seattle sights.

Are you old enough to recognize what this is?

The blue trees near the Westlake Center are meant to draw awareness to global deforestation.  The paint is supposedly water soluble but hadn't washed off since they were painted in April.

Men in Kilts?  I'd hire them.

One of the boats from Deadliest Catch.

Next trip, we're going to see the Fremont Troll close up!

I knew some of those sites, but not the men in kilts!! ;) I once did a duck tour in Boston and it was the same, gloriously wacky thing! Must take a special person to be a tour guide...!

The only Duck tour I've ever been on was in Wisconsin Dells (awesome tour, not very cheesy). Seeing Gasworks Park from the water makes me want to take the Seattle tour!

Where oh where did you find the typewriter eraser? (I think I still have one of those somewhere...)

I guess I'm not quite old enough!

That looks like a lot of fun & your boys are good sports about the cheesy tourist photos.

Someday I want to go there!
We have Duck tours in the Wisconsin Dells..I suspect they're the same, but different;)

Oh, I totally remember those! And typing using carbon paper LOL!

Men in Kilts? I'd hire 'em too!
