Please note the photos are soooo out of order !! Mobile uploads ugh.
But anyways, I barely ever go for the window seat but I thought why not snug up to the window for my “long” flight from Detroit to Seattle! Flying during the middle of the day, also not so typical for me. Nonetheless I wanted to land the same time as Liza!
Omg I couldn’t believe the view of Mount Rainer out of my window on the clear sky day! I really love the mountains and crispy air !!
Our first stop was going to Amoire, where Emily works, it’s hidden in the back of a cafe called Callus! Which also looks like a plant shop lol.
We toured Pioneer Square, one of the historical districts being revitalized by cafes, art galleries, clothing and homeware stores etc. So cute.
A happy hour was on deck at Copal, delicious Mexican delights… no chips.. that was a first for a Mexican restaurant to me! But amazing margaritas and palomas.
Capitol Hill area was our next destination to meet up with Uni! Uni is a lovely pup whose super friendly and not so barkey bark.
Saturday we visited Pike Place Market, omg omg so fascinating and so cool. Y’all know how obsessed I am with farmers market but this place is next level, like the Pier 1 in San Francisco. This was probably my 3rd time at Pike Place, but it has been about 7 years. This time I had to buy fresh king crab claws… o my yumm…!! This is a new thing I like to eat in the last 2 or 3 years. Fantastic.
We saw the original Starbucks! And all of the tourist in line there. Lol.
We also went to Beechers Cheese, holy cow!! So worth waiting in the quick moving line for the grilled cheese made with flagship cheese, and the mac and cheese. Don’t forget to go for the samples in the back. It’s on the corner of Pine Street and basically the market itself. You can see the cheese being made ! So cool.
Also a must see is the Gum Wall under the Pike Place Market, check this out it is disgusting but fascinating.
Alki Beach is in West Seattle, that was a first for me. So funny we saw all these student aged people picking up trash, and they seemed excited about it. Our cultural norms where I live in the midwest led liza and I to believe they were in trouble and had to be doing that. However no, lol. We are in Seattle and they are the environmental science club and spending their Saturday afternoon saving mother earth… we know this because we asked… twice Haha
Loads of giggles and laughs, what more could you want. And basically wearing pajamas all day.
Xx until next time
