On our way into Seattle we met up with my sister at XXX Root Beer in Issaquah for some ginormous root beer floats and cheeseburgers. I had no trouble downing every drop of that frothy deliciousness! Amy could have stayed in the restaurant for hours checking out everything pinned on the walls.

It made for a slightly longer walk to the Great Wheel, but we had free parking. Thanks to being involved in Pirates of Penzance on Bainbridge Island in 2012, I knew exactly where to find it. Most parking in downtown Seattle charges until 8, but there are a few spots near the ferry that only charge until 6.
Lighting was a bit difficult since it was getting late, but fortunately there were enough people there with lights on their smartphones or we would not have been visible in these pictures.
Some guy climbed to the top of the troll's head and sat there for about 15 minutes. After he left I tried to climb up, but the shoes I was wearing made it clear that it would not end well for me if I did.
