Wacky, Refined, Surprising, Wonderful Seattle
2015-04-12 11:16:06

We walked down the hill to the Olympic Sculpture Park, took in the sights and artwork, and began a walking/busing/uberring trip that took us through Capital Hill, the University District, and Fremont.

The day included everything from watching coffee roasting on Pike Street to slurping down delicious udon near UW to observing the antics of drunks on the Troll Stroll while sipping homebrew.
