Special Father’s Day Gift

A good friend of ours loves cruising – and cruise ships!  For Father’s Day, his family got up at 4:30AM so they could go to the pier in Seattle to watch three ships come into the harbor from Alaska.  After the ships docked, the Nelson family went to breakfast at the Edgewater Hotel.  The hotel is built out over Elliott Bay. The Edgewater is famous for the picture of the Beatles fishing from the window of their hotel room. 

Ned’s story and pictures --
Here is a defination of a perfect father's day for a cruise nut like me.
  •   4am - Wake up
  • 4:30 - Leave home with warm clothes
  • 5am - Starbucks
  • 5:15 - Arrive on Seattle's Elliott Bay to watch the cruise ships come in: Sapphire Princess and the HAL Oosterdam
  • 5:45 - Drive to Pier 66 for a close up view of the Norwegian Pearl
  • 6:30 - Breakfast next door at the Edgewater Hotel
 Now that is living. Family really loves me to get up that early.
