Day Twelve: To Boldly Go

Day Twelve: To Boldly Go

Today was our day to  visit Seattle. Our first stop was the Experience Music Project Museum. Luckily for me, it was hosting a Star Trek Exhibit. Here’s the museum:

Our first stop in the museum was an exhibit on Indie Games (computer). We played a number of very cool and kind of addictive games.

But then, we went to the part I’ve been looking forward to since we decided we were traveling out west:

And after climbing the stairs – I was pretty much in Nerdvana:

Here’s a picture of me getting a little downtime with my fellow Borg:

And here’s me fantasizing about my dream job: A Starship Engineer crawling around the Jeffries Tubes to fix something:

Also housed at the Experience Music Project are the Science Fiction and Fantasy Halls of Fame (which also included Horror as well). Here are a handful of the exhibits:

From the Princess Bride (and the katana from Highlander):

And last, but certainly not least, a helmet from one of the French Knights in Monty Python and The Holy Grail:

And just so you don’t think we did anything else but spend the day in the museum, we also went to the top of the Space Needle:

And here are a number of pictures from the top:

After our aerial view of Seattle, we met a friend of my wife’s and went to Pike Place Market:

And the Pike Brewing Company for food and adult beverages:

Gentle reader, consider yourself lucky that I was relatively restrained in the number of pictures I posted as I think I took a picture of nearly every single exhibit in the Star Trek, Fantasy, and Science Fiction exhibits!

Tomorrow, we save farewell to Seattle and begin our trek back east.

Happy journeys!

Mike
