60th Birthday – Willapalooza Day 3

Heather & Joe came to the hotel to pick us up on our third and last day of my birthday celebration and away we went!  Our first stop was at the original Starbucks on Pike Street for a yummy cup of coffee.

Coffee time!

Next we made our way down along Pike Place Market to get a picture with Rachel the pig.  I’ve seen the pig standing at the market for years but just recently realized that she’s actually a piggy bank and collects between $6000 and $9000 in just about every kind of currency in the world.  The money goes to the Market Fund and is used for social services such as senior and preschool programs and feeding the hungry.

Then of course we had to add our contribution to the Gum Wall in Post Alley.  This was voted one of the top 5 germiest tourist attractions in 2009.  You can see how much Bonnie’s enjoying this one!

It's not THAT bad Bonnie!

Our next stop was at Kerry Park.  This little park has the most beautiful view of the city!

Kathy and L J are getting tired of Willapalooza!

I can't get out any more I'm too tired!

Will this party EVER end?

And the day wouldn’t have been complete without going to visit the Fremont Troll!

Our last stop on this wonderful adventure was to the Space Needle for lunch.  It was such a beautiful day so the view was fantastic!

A toast to the perfect ending of a perfect day!
