Day 56: Seattle and the last baseball game of the trip -- Kansas City Royals vs Mariners

The famous Pike Place Fish Market

Oysters at Elliott's at Pier 56

About a mile walk from the piers to the baseball game -- Kansas City Royals at the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field

View from our seats

Today, Seattle's Felix Hernandez, one of baseball's best pitchers is throwing.

As a promotion the Mariners sell one section, the King Felix section, and provide T-Shirts to the fans. Anytime Felix gets 2 strikes on the batter, the whole section rises and chants Felix, Felix...

The field crew dances while they smooth the infield.

Felix pitches a good game and leaves after 7 innings with the Mariners ahead 5 to 2.

But then, like San Francisco, the gulls arrived hoping to dine on the leftovers. The Royals tie it up 5 to 5, but the Mariners go on to win.

The gulls finally get to enjoy dinner.

Back toward the port for dinner.

Day 53: Much More Maui

The Morning Beach Walk

Each morning we walk down the beach (about a mile) from the Hyatt to Blackrock at the Sheraton.



See if you can find Jeannie.


South of the Sheraton is the Kaanapali Beach Hotel where we stayed a few times before discovering Priceline.

next are the Whaler Condos and Whaler's Village shopping and restaurant area






South of Whaler's Village is the Westin Resort, home of our palm tree and the Tropica beachside restaurant where we ate on Wednesday night.





Next is the nicest resort on Kaanapali Beach.

Going south, the Marriott is next? On Tuesday, I had dinner at its beachside restaurant, Longboards.




And back to the Hyatt


Where they were doing some work outside our window.
