Greetings from Alaskan Way

We have had a very full Saturday starting in the morning with Daniel at the Seattle Aquarium on the waterfront below Pike Place Market. We got to see otter and puffin feedings, watch fish from an undersea dome, and eat lunch in the cafe overlooking the Seattle Great Wheel and the ferry to Bainbridge. We also got to enjoy perfect weather!

Then we went to the EMP Museum, currently featuring the Star Trek 50th anniversary exhibit Exploring New Worlds, where we got to sit in the captain's chair, stand in a Borg regeneration alcove, admire props and costumes -- they have both Montalban's and Cumberbatch's Kahn outfits -- and star in a minute-long episode sequence in which we got to beam out of the museum.

We walked to the International Fountain and through Seattle Center past the Armory, then to Daniel's apartment, where we met a friend who's in town for a medical conference for Thai food and catching up since I hadn't seen her in ages! So it was another pretty perfect day except that I twisted my knee which made walking complicated!
