This was my first trip to Seattle, Washington. I was drawn to visit the city because it is the current residence for one of my daughters. I would have preferred to visit in the warmer months but circumstances conspired to create a window for a visit in November, the rainy season. This day, the first of our tour, saw a parting of the clouds and a nice brisk day to tour. This is the Public Market, a place she tells me where one can experience the heartbeat of Seattle.
