In Ballard we rolled up next to this lovely little car. It's covered in old floppy discs! Notice the keys (like from a keyboard) all around the trim? The license plate read, "disc dvr" or something like that. Isn't that funny? We saw lots of people snapping pictures of her car with their camera phones. Gotta love the, um, interesting people who live in Seattle.
Ever watch "Deadliest Catch" on Discovery channel? It's one of our favorite shows. It's very intersting and most of the guys are from Seattle. Ballard is a Scandinavian town. (Nelson's are all Scandinavians so we fit in well there). Most of the fisherman are Scandinavian. (ever heard Capt. Sig speak Norwegian?) Whenever we go to Ballard I ask,"Can you see any of the boats? The Northwestern? Cornelia Marie? The Wizard?" I've never seen any of them there, but I know they go there. But, even though I haven't seen their boats, I have seen...
...the Lockspot. This is where they filmed the show "After the Catch". We passed a sign that said something about Deadliest Catch tours as we were driving away. We are so going to have to go back there soon so I can get a closer look...and someday I will have to eat there...someday.
So. That is our little spur of the moment trip. We took 100 pictures. We had fun and the kids slept well last night. (o:
