Sleepless in Seattle

hehehe. I am posting with popular titles, the ‘hello seattle’ is a song by Owl City. And ofcourse Sleepless in Seattle is a movie. Today I went past the house they used for the film but it has been so long since I have seen it that I didnt recall it. For anyone interested.
SO I was supposed to meet up with a friend I met on flickr tomorrow but then she sent me a message inviting me along to something today so we spent the morning missing each other on the phone/computer until we connected and organised an afternoon meet.

I took the morning (inbetween this running around) to go and head over to the space needle to check out the view and then to do a bit of shopping. I bought a ring, Edwin! hahaha. Ed was just telling me the other day about how much jewellery I look at. I dont buy it unless its awesome and cheap and I have only bought 1 necklace, 3 rings, 1 pair of earrings whilst overseas so I dont think thats too bad. I think thats all anyway hahaha. Vancouver actually has an awesome independent jewellery selection!
Anyway, back to Seattle. Heres a really crappy pic of the space needle, theres a better one on my flickr.

So yes, the space needle was SO HIGH UP! It had an awesome view and the sun was out so it was lovely. I really enjoyed just walking around the streets and people watching. There are some real characters over here. I wish I could take photos of them all!

Heres some american candy bars i tried

Tootsie Roll = ew. Not my thing at all.
Razzles = soooooooo cool. They really taste like sherberty kinda candy and then they make gum SO COOL.
Junior Mints = mini after dinner mints. Good too.

I also saw peanut butter twix!!!!!!!!! WTF!! Dont mess with the original. I couldnt bring myself to buy it. Peanut Butter obsession – I TOLD YOU! hahaha.

Anyway, yes so then I met up with Kate and her friend Fiona and then Kates friend Elena from Italy and we went adventuring for some food and then on the Seattle Ducks, which is like the vehicles that go into the water in QLD. They are even crazier though hahaha. The lady driver was so insane, she is married to one of the fishermen on deadliest catch. Go figure!! It was a lot of fun and great to have some local knowledge into Seattle.

Thats enough photos for now.

    I’m glad you had fun and could meet some people 🙂
    I’d love to visit some U.S place someday soon. It has to be huge.

    Love!

    “One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them, one ring to bring them all, and in the darkness, bind them.”

    You still have to find that little ring. 😉

    P.S. Junior Mints were a secret cure in an episode of “Seinfeld”.
