We all met in the lobby after breakfast then walked down to the Hop On Hop Off pick up location. We rode down to the waterfront and got off near Argosy Cruises so we could get our tickets for the Harbor Tour cruise. We had an hour to walk around the piers and check out the stores and restaurants to see which we wanted to eat in for lunch!! The Harbor tour was excellent. We all got a good dose of vitamin D riding on the top! The narration was excellent on this trip! After the cruise the majority of us headed over to Ivar's Acres of Clams which has been in business since 1938. Several of us had King Salmon...this is the last week of the only 2 weeks that the you can get fresh King Salmon! The rest of the time it comes frozen. I had it and it was awesome! After lunch we headed to the Aquarium. It is a very nice place that I woud recommened to all ages. We got back on the bus and rode it to Pikes Place Market to watch the flying fish. Our group decided to head back to the hotel. I that been a super long day!! We rested up some then headed out for dinner!
