A Tour Of Seattle's Rich And Famous

Started out at the Kirkland waterfront.

Let the ride begin. The guide was talking about who lives where but I honestly couldn't tell you. I was so busy flicking away. Everyone gasp when
we slowed in front of Bill Gates 65,000 sq ft mansion. I took a couple of pics but it was hard to see anything. Oh well, the ride was a lot of fun.
I heard Kenny G, Bill Gates, Sun Young Moon, local tv and radio personalities and others mentioned by our tour guide.

Rev. Sun Myung Moon's Unification Church bought this beautiful 1907 home

Nice mansions.

I'd rather buy a huge condo in downtown Seattle if I had that kind of money.

Awesome photos again pwright. I grew up Kirkland, nothing like the neighborhoods shown here, but it's cool to see here in SSC! Also, I never felt comfortable driving over 520 even though I used to do it often. You confirm why lol.

That's Bellevue. A suburban center, sort of like the ones dotting Sydney.
