Elliott Bay Book Co. (by request)
As requested by a visitor, here is a streetscape view of this great independent Seattle bookstore. It is located in the Pioneer Square area, so if you've visited Seattle, there is a great chance you've ducked into Elliott Bay Book Co. for a browse, or into the cafe on the lower level (entrance is just around the corner) for a little something caffeinated. That lovely clock is one of the historic clocks that can be found around town and honors history enthusiast Earl Layman (click the link for more info and a Seattle clock walk map). My suggestion for a really lovely, lazy day would be, enjoy a good long browse at EBBC, pick a selection or two for purchase, then amble down to the ferry dock, pay for passage, walk aboard, get a cozy booth and read all the way to Bainbridge Island, get off, amble up to a lovely nearby cafe, order a little something, sit and nosh and read and sip for hours, then amble back to the ferry at dusk for a return trip to the city and enjoy the approaching Seattle skyline with all its sunset lights on to greet you again.
