I was surprised at how much fun we had exploring Seattle’s underground.  Continue reading “Bill Speidel’s Underground Tour of Seattle”

Hyatt Resorts – Hyatt House – Seattle, WA

Hyatt House As a Hyatt reward member, we have stayed at a few resorts in their brand, but had never stayed at a Hyatt House until last weekend. We had a phenomenal stay at one of their newer resorts, the Hyatt House, Downtown Seattle.  We were in Seattle to celebrate a belated Valentine’s day celebration, and it was a perfect location as it was literally across the street from the iconic Space Needle.     Continue reading “Hyatt Resorts – Hyatt House – Seattle, WA”

Our Traveling Blog Photos from Lovely Downtown Seattle

We just got back from Seattle and had a great time (minus still being treated like crap at security even though we paid for TSA pre-check, but sadly that’s a different issue) even though it rained most of the time we were there.  We stayed at the Hyatt House in downtown and took advantage of the free shuttle which took guests to various spots in downtown within a mile of the city.  Today I wanted to share some of these pictures we took while in the area.

Washington State Capitol – Olympia, WA

Washinston State Capitol bldgOn our recent trip to Seattle to  watch my Angels play the Mariners at Safeco Field, we were able to check one more state capitol off our list, the Washington State Capitol in Olympia! I have seriously lost count, but it was really nice to mark this one off our list 🙂  Even though the capitol building isn’t in Seattle, it was only an hour and ½ away, so we made a day trip out of it.

Let’s Go Shopping at Pike Place Market – Seattle, WA

Pike_Place_Marke - SignOne of the things Gene really wanted to see and do while we were in Seattle was visit the Pike Place Market and watch the guys throw some fish around. I really didn’t see the appeal on the fish throwing part, but I did want to see the market.  We spent a few areas one afternoon before heading next door to Safeco Field to watch my Angels play the Mariners. We had a great time walking about the market place. Continue reading “Let’s Go Shopping at Pike Place Market – Seattle, WA”

Safeco Field and The Seattle Mariners

Safeco -FrontWhile in Seattle to see the Microsoft Visitor Center, Boeing, Pike Place Market, the Space Needle, and a few other attractions, we also visited Safeco Field to watch my Anaheim Angels take on the Settle Mariners. We had a great time and the Seattle Mariners employees and fans were great hosts. As a side note, I was very happy to visit the stadium as it represented my 18th ballpark and it was the last one I hadn’t seen west of the Mississippi. Getting closer to my goal of visiting all 30 parks!  Anyway, below is a little information about Safeco Field and the Seattle Mariners. Continue reading “Safeco Field and The Seattle Mariners”
