My body clock was way to0 powerful for me..... I was pretty tired when I went to bed last night. It was very late on the East Coast. Unfortunately, I got up based on East Coast time. I was up at 0200 and not loving it. Tonight may not be much better because I never sleep well the night before a big event (like going on a 65 day voyage). This morning, after an amazing breakfast here at the hotel, I decided to tour around town. I went to the Pike Place Market, which is very historic and amazing. There is tons of produce, seafood, flowers and crafts...... love it! There are a lot of interesting characters at the market. I had lunch with our Holland America Sales Rep, Mookie, which was great. We then toured around Seattle for some great photos. I especially liked the statue of Vladimir Lenin and the Giant Troll under an overpass with a WV bug in its clutches..... Why they bought a statue of Lenin from Russia and placed it in Seattle is a bit puzzling...... left coast art? It turned out to be a pretty nice day aside from being too overcast and cool for my taste. Tomorrow is the big day! Now I'm getting excited!!!!!!
