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.
