People say that the happiest place on earth is Disney World. They lie. This has to be it. Welcome to Seattle, WA, ladies and gentlemen. I could live here.
After waiting in line at the border forEVER, we finally made it through and back into the states.
We went from Vancouver to Seattle, and spent the day wandering around the downtown area. We first headed to Starbucks. “When in Rome…”
We headed over across the street to Pikes Place. So fun.
Produce. Seafood. Flowers. So fresh and wonderful.
I tried a local brew of a pale ale (approved!) and we had fish and chips, pesto pizza, and salmon cakes.
On the way out of the city, we saw the Space Needle, as any good tourist in Seattle must do…
Our friend Kelly, who we know from Falmouth, kindly put us up for the night. It was great to chat and get to know her a bit better! She has a super cool, urban garden behind her house. She and her roommate use the square foot method of planting. I’m going to give this a shot next spring!
Kelly told us that Seattle is a really artsy town, and the city is made up primarily of walking neighborhoods. Everyone is very eco-conscious. Artsy. You’ve got the ocean. The mountains. I love it. It’s beautiful. I could see myself living here one day…
Anyone have any job leads for me? 🙂
