Seattle is famous for its skyline. Seattle built its first skyscraper in 1904 and has undergone several construction booms since. Nineteen of the twenty tallest buildings in Washington are located in Seattle. Seattle has 12 skyscrapers that rise more than 152 metres. Seattle’s skyline is ranked first in the Northwestern United States.


The Pike Place Market is a Seattle Institution.  It is right on the waterfront near the downtown area and is a  place to get great, fresh food,  see the famous Seattle fish throwing, and take in the music and character of this thriving market.  The guys from the world famous Pike Place Fish Market wanted to throw Joanna, along with a huge salmon ! They didn’t, but posed for a photo instead.  They are a great bunch of characters – a must see place in Seattle.

Smelly Joanna!

If you don’t love watches, do a little bit of research into watchmaking and the engineers these men really are – and I guarantee you will change your mind.
