Seattle: Capital Hill

March in Seattle and we have now been here about 7 days.  We have the evening and one more day to spend in the city and then we head out on the road.

In the evening we will be walking up to Capital Hill to meet up with a friend.  Not knowing where we were going we decided to spend the afternoon exploring Capital Hill.  Capital Hill was vibrant and alive, and during the evening it was equally so.  Here are some of the scenes we saw on Capital Hill.

Green in the City: This was perhaps one of my most interesting random finds. Walking up Seattle's Capital Hill one late afternoon, I spotted this random glove lying on the wall.

There was an interesting memorial on the opposite side of the road but I forgot to take a photo of the plaque when walking back down.

Flowers and Bumble Bees

On our way back down the hill we stopped off at a pub for a beer. The decor was very interesting and largely made up of randon pipes joined together.

When walked back up Capital Hill that evening to meet a friend for dinner at the Pine Box.  Turns out that this was originally a mortuary and it from there that Bruce Lee was buried.  I was so disappointed that I had not taken my camera back up with me.  The ceilings of this restaurant/pub were vaulted and some of the booths look like they were made from the original church pews.
