Sunday we spent a full day exploring Seattle and we could not have asked for better weather. Our first stop was Pike’s Place Public Market, located right on the water and famous for fish tossing, where we enjoyed a light brunch of fresh shrimp cocktail and spicy blood marys. It was much more busy than during our visit over Christmas, but the bustling booths, crowed streets, and corners featuring street performers made for great people watching.
For a change of pace we headed a bit north, driving through the hilly and lovely Queen Anne’s Dirstrict, to Ballard. Colorful, Funky shops and seemingly endless boutiques occupied the rest of the afternoon, ducking into one after another. Exhausted from shopping (mostly of the window variation) we sat down for an evening snack, sharing a peach chicken sandwich (yummm) and onion rings (splurge), before hitting the highway home.
