Place 73 – Day 7: Seattle,WA – Gas Works Park, Pinball Museum & Oldest Chinese Restaurant

Sleep!

We slept in until 11:45 this morning, partially by accident but also it was lovely to get some sleep.

We had our breakfast, showered and finally headed out at around 13:30.

2 Buses

We got onto the bus and had to change at downtown onto a bus taking us further north.

We got up to an area called Fremont and walked towards the Gas Works Park.

Gas Works Park

The gas works park is a park which contains a former coal gasification plant.

The style looks very ‘steampunk’ and it is a really awesome thing to look at. This place was used from 1906-1956 and still looks great for its age! This is actually the old remaining coal gasification plant in the US!

We were also able to get amazing photos of the city from this view point!

Google

We were aware that Google had an office around that area too, so we walked down the coast line and then came across it.

They basically own an entire street of buildings…it was very cool!

Pinball Museum

We got a bus back towards the city and got off at Chinatown.

We walked for 10 minutes and got to Seattle’s pinball museum.

We had to pay a fee of $15 each and then we could play for as long as we wanted on whichever machines we wanted!

We had a really great time playing all of the machines. They were also layed out in age order, from 1960 all the way to 2018!

There were 2 floors to the store and we actually really enjoyed ourselves, considering we were a little sceptical.

Oldest Chinese Restaurant

We asked for good food suggestions at the pinball place and were told that the oldest Chinese restaurant in Seattle was around the corner. That sold it for us, so off we went!

We got to Tai Tung and instantly noticed how old it looked, but in a good way! It has been open since 1935 and it has incredible character. It was also Bruce Lee’s favourite restaurant in Seattle!

We sat and were given a pot of Tea, water and then later, free cabbage soup!

We ordered beef chow mein, sweet & sour pork as well as some rice.

The food was pretty good, actually! The chow mein was delicious, with incredible beef in it. The pork inside the batter was good, but the batter was a little odd and the sauce a bit too sweet.

Hometime!

We walked back from chinatown to our apartment. There were some incredible views on the way, including a beautiful sunset.

We got back, packed as we leave Seattle tomorrow, and watched some TV for a bit.

Tomorrow

Luckily, we don’t need to leave too early in the morning due to our flight being early afternoon.


This Time Last Year!
