On the way up to the San Juan Islands I stayed a day in Seattle. I wanted to see the Mark Ryden exhibit Wondertoonel [LINK] at the Frye Museum before meeting up with my sister. Since I’ve spent so little time actually in Seattle I went touristing around. Of course if there’s something Led Zeppelin related I’ll go see it. Which in this case is the infamous Edgewater Inn where the “shark incident” occurred. At the time you could fish off the balconies of the hotel… well you’ll see [LINK]. These days if that sort of thing went on all kinds of lawsuits would be flying. The Beatles also stayed at the hotel on their 1964 tour and there’s a famous picture of them fishing out the window [LINK].
