Our good friends, Frank and Terry, relocated to the Seattle area last fall, so we figured we'd coincide our visit with them with the Yankee's visit to Safeco Field this past weekend...

We hopped on a Jetblue flight from JFK and arrived in Seattle about 5 hours later.....the airport out there is very quiet at that time of day, so we found our friends just steps outside of the terminal.....

We slipped very quickly into tourist mode.....

This won't be a report like my Jamaica stories......because we were only there a couple of days the good portion of our visit revolved around cooking, eating and baseball...I found some great photo ops everywhere though, so this will be more a photo album than a story.....

We left the airport and headed for the Pike Place Market....the neighborhood around the marketplace is full of little shops, bars and restaurants....

We spent the rest of the day relaxing and sampling some of our Market purchases....the whole time zone thing had me utterly discombobulated, so I ended up going to bed about 20+ hours after waking up...

Steve "Pre" Prefontaine was a world class runner from the Pacific Northwest....when I was a runner in high school, he was one of the guys we wanted to be like.....tragically, he lost his life in 1975 at the age of 24.....but he's still remembered ...

DDave...sorry that we didnt ahve more time to try to get together. Weekends for us lately are filled with baseball of the 11 year old boy kind. Kept us busy most the weekend. If I had made it over...this picture below is the mode of travel I would have taken....Washington State Ferries. An hour boat ride from where I live and I am in downtown Seattle.

Q, I'll be the first to admit that I know absolutely nothing about the economics of the Jamaican fishing industry....but I'd be willing to bet that the reason the fish are so expensive to buy in Seattle is because they're so expensive to catch /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif ...and, yeah, I'd heard that whalewatching can be done out there, but we simply didn't have the time...our schedule for the weekend was something like this:

Friday- wake up, eat, some sightseeing, ballgame

Saturday- same as Friday

Sunday- wake up, ballgame, eat

Monday- wake up, go to airport, fly home

Compry, there may have been some Tabasco on the table, but these bivalves didn't need it....they were plenty delicious on their own....briny, but still slightly sweet.....I didn't really care for the red wine vinegar granita that was served along side (see the little silver cup in the middle of the plate)

Tdude.... sure, we got some ribbing from the Ozzies about our Yankee gear, but it was all in good fun....I hafta tell you, the people of Seattle could not have been friendlier /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/70409-waytogo.gif even in the ballpark.....in fact, many of the Ozzies seemed pleasantly surprised that we'd go all that way for a couple of ballgames....thanks for the heads up re:Capital Hill, Fremont....Pioneer Square was way too much fun!!!

Hi Wanda!! you'd be surprised how inexpensive our airfare was....the 5 hour flight to Seattle cost less than our 3 hour flight to Jamaica....

Yes Dave, and the quote on Ja. fish was before being frozen and put on the shelves with ice.

Fish is relatively more expensive than most other meats, except for the delicacies and hard to get parts.

OK...I think 48 oysters is enough...let's go to the ballpark!!!

Safeco Field is a short walk away from the piers, and the weather was nice; sunny, 60-65 degrees (and no rain!!!), so off we go....

and just so no one gets too confused, Qwest Field is right next door to Safeco....Qwest is the homefield for the Seahawks of the National Football League...

Rookie righthander Darrel Rasner started for the Yankees for game one....he pitched pretty well, giving up only 3 runs through 7 innings, but the vaunted lineup of millionaires couldn't string any hits together, so the Yankees were shutout 3-0 /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/frown.gif

The Yankees finally won a game the Yankee way...the bats pounded the M's into submission, and another rookie righthander, Matt DiSalvo, gave up only 2 runs on a couple of hits while working into the seventh inning....

And if the win wasn't enough, we also got to see an appearance by the great Mariano Rivera...he's the very best reliever in the game, and we'll probably never see another one like him....without question, he's a first ballot Hall-of-Famer....

warming up in the bullpen...

We had a day game on Sunday, so we were outta the house by about 10AM....

I gotta tell you, I give those ballplayers a lotta credit....this was our third game in three days and we were exhausted...and we were only spectators!! These guys play 162 games a season, with a day off maybe every 7-10 days, from the beginng of April 'til the beginning of October.....and, if your team makes the playoffs, you could conceivably play another 21 games in October....

We caught a couple of minutes of batting practice before the game...
