Water Break

The only water fountain at Pikes Place Market.  An entire ocean in addition to numerous shops in one of the wetest places in the continental United States and you can still die of dehydration.  This is a stark reminder to always bring water with you.  Otherwise, mirages like this water fountain fill your senses with false hope, crushing your spirits.
