I live in Seattle, Washington. Whenever I walk past the Edgewater Hotel, I always tell whomever I'm with (or think to myself): "That's where the Beatles fished from their window." Here's the story for anyone who cares to read it: 

http://www.seattlepi.com/local.....305857.php

The Edgewater Hotel is built on a pier over Elliott Bay, which is very deep and is home to the world's largest octopus species. I wonder if, while the Beatles were fishing out of their hotel window, Ringo maybe hooked an octopus, inspiring his future song. Probably not. :)

I was in Seattle in 2004. I looked at that hotel and took a picture of it. I did read about how people would fish from the windows. But, I didn't know the Beatles yet. Oh, well, at least I have the memory of seeing the hotel and the photo I can look at. Thanks for putting all that together for me, Bungalow Bob. apple01heartapple01

 

You are quite welcome, Ahhh Girl. I hope you enjoyed your Seattle visit. [snip]

We did have a wonderful time in Seattle.

Here's what I have written about Edgewater Hotel in my scrapbook: "For a while, people could fish from their windows, but there were a lot of problems. People put fish in the mattresses and bathtubs, fish would slap against the windows of lower floors when people on upper floors were reeling fish in."

I PM'd you the rest of the story.
