楓葉國聖誕‧新年之旅 (十七)

1月11日 - 第18天

今日是西雅圖速去速回一日遊!
不計過境,上一趟去美國是96年的紐約行,
嘩.. 足足有13年!
難得從溫哥華開車到西雅圖只需2小時,
所以MT就提議來個一日限定“濕平地”。

大家對於西雅圖的認知,
可能只限於經典電影Sleepless in Seattle。
其實西雅圖除是美國華盛頓州的首府外,
更是美國太平洋西北區最大的城市,
建市於1850年代,現人口約380萬人。
另外最為人熟悉的還包括Starbucks(發跡於此),
及grunge music(俗稱垃圾音樂的發源地)。

晨早9點出發!繼續落雨.. 超煩

雖然要趕路,但也要買個饅頭醫五藏廟,那麼就買個老麥饅頭啦!北美一般的大型老麥(或其他fast food)必有drive thru服務,即是先把車開到對講機前,隔空跟服務員落單,然後開車兜一個圈付錢兼取食物走人。

先看看想吃甚麼
跟手隔空落單
兜個圈去另一邊付錢兼取食物
當日雨勢十分大,加上冷空氣,引至山上出現一陣陣白煙

從溫哥華開車到華盛頓州邊境約半個小時,若關卡不是大排長(車)龍的話,大概廿分鐘已可過關(遇上長週末可能要個多小時)。

從關卡開車到西雅圖downtown約個半小時,踩行油的話或可多省15分鐘左右!

到啦到啦.. 西雅圖地標之一:Space Needle
Space Needle旁的Arts&Science Center
話明是downtown,當然周圍也是商廈
原來西雅圖也有Macy’s百貨
玻璃圓拱建築物是Washington State Convention & Trade Center
橙黃色的士.. so American
在downtown幾乎每一條街都有Starbucks
瘋狂濕平前先去西雅圖一大景點 – Pike Place Market;Pike Place Market位於海旁,有點像三藩市的漁人碼頭
嘩.. 好恐怖的椰菜花
哇哈哈.. MEE SUM PASTRY
HOM BOW是甚麼意思呢?漢堡?
有唐人師父整飽架喎
市場附近有些矮矮的apartment,應該是好(貴)嘢來
這家店舖幾熱鬧喎.. 買甚麼的呢?
哦.. 芝士專門店
店內還可看到製造芝士的過程.. 個人跌落去會點呢?
登登登登.. 這就是史上首間Starbucks
人頭湧湧喎,搞咩
人龍原來是排隊買史上首間Starbucks的限量紀念品
1912年.. 即是有98年歷史架啦
Fun@史上首間Starbucks
在遠方的西雅圖天空..
市場內有甚麼買呢?有蜜糖賣喎.. Snoqualmie Valley是位於華盛頓州西面Snoqualmie河附近的區域,有很多farmland的
這位看檔姐姐超有心機解釋每一種蜜糖的好處,但最後我一樽都沒有買
不過我最後也買了一堆長條膠囊蜜糖當手信.. 膠囊蜜糖有點像唧唧冰,內藏不同味道的蜜糖,除可當snack food外,還可加進飲品中
繼續行下先
西雅圖是沿海城市,所以海鮮產量豐富.. 哇..超巨型三文魚,一條足夠養活一家五口呀
發覺市中心有很多非常古老的建築物
市中心的另一角落
成個trip無濕平過乜滯,就是在這裡徹底失收
半價喎,唔係唔大出血呀?
在A&F殺個片甲不留之後就要急急離開downtown,因為MT要趕去outlet mall買BB衫;SEATTLE PREMIUM OUTLETS位於downtown與加拿大邊境之間,所以返回溫哥華的時候是必經的
SEATTLE PREMIUM OUTLETS共有110間店舖,衫褲鞋襪廚房用品乜都有
Polo.. 價錢的確平,但可惜我已過了買“Polo”的年代
已在香港全線摺埋的Benetton在北美仍有點市場!唉,highschool年代,我都是它們的粉絲來啊
Weekdays的outlet mall.. 靜到呢
Outlet mall一向都不是我的朋友,所以零收鑊,反觀MT就平掃了一袋BB衫;走啦走啦..趕返去跟FL&Ethan吃晚飯啦
