My grandparents went to the Pike Place Market early in the 1900's
to buy produce, flowers and other goods they didn't grow themselves.
When they moved to Kirkland from Seattle in the late 1930's they still went to the market,
walking down a gravel road to
travel first by bus as neither of them ever drove a car,
then by ferry across Lake Washington, then to downtown by trolly!
I must get my persistence from them!
Their love of aesthetics have always been an inspiration for me.
