There’s a small souvenir shop 30 minutes away from Cannon Beach that sold Goonies merchandise. We thought there would be a wider selection, but they only had a few things. After Astoria, we made our way to Washington.
Once we finally arrived in Washington, we parked & checked in for our reservation at the Space Needle restaurant. Once we got seated, I felt super nauseous because I didn’t know it was a revolving restaurant & I have motion sickness so I couldn’t even look out the window ): It was an unpleasant dining experience for me.
After dinner, Jeremiah & I made our way upstairs to check out the view & take a few photos. There were just too many people up there so we didn’t stay very long. If I would ever go back to Washington again, I would definitely skip the Space Needle & do something else. I wasn’t impressed at all. It seemed so much cooler when I was a kid. (shrugs).
After the Space Needle, Jeremiah & I went to the Pike Place Market. We didn’t get the chance to walk around the whole thing because by the time we got there, a lot of the shops were closing up. It was kind of an unpleasant experience there as well because everyone was just everywhere, people kept pushing & shoving others, etc. It’s definitely a tourist spot. The market seems cute to shop for groceries, but other than that, I wasn’t that impressed by it. It honestly just reminds me of the markets back at home.
We stopped by the gum wall alley & took a few photos. Interesting alley, but super gross. lol.
First day in Washington wasn’t that great, but it’s okay. Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
