We recently flew to Seattle to celebrate a very exciting graduation for my man’s sister. She graduated from Commercial Dive school! How crazy cool is that?! For the big event, I went classic chic with a knee length skirt and sweater. It was a little colder than I thought it would be so ended up wearing this faux leather jacket basically the whole day. I got a gross bug bite on the side of my toe that was really bothered by my Charlotte Olympia kitty shoes I was planning to wear so I wore my sandals all day. Even in the rain! I guess I am a California girl so we can get away with things like that… *wink wink*
Right now, I’m writing this post on a ferry to Seattle to catch a late night flight home. I’m always surprised when and where I can upload posts to my blog and all it makes me want to do is travel more. I honestly don’t think that’s a bug that can be fixed! I do feel better knowing we’re heading to Fiji and Australia soon but still! Here’s to a happy, fun, and safe 4th of July to all my lovely followers!
We were in Washington this past week to celebrate my step sister’s wedding so we took advantage of this time to do a bit of exploring! I love Seattle and no visit there would be complete without a walk through Pike Place Market. This continuous farmer’s market has been going for over a century and is full of many treasures and sights. It’s home to the Pike Place Fish Company where the men throw your purchases (with astonishing accuracy!) across the whole store front for packaging. It’s a fun sight to see! I can’t imagine I’d be very good at catching a slippery fish!!
We nibbled on salmon on a stick while checking out the few blocks worth of gorgeous flowers. These bouquets are done with expert skill and won’t break the bank. Most large bouquets were only $10! If I were a local, my house would always have fresh flowers. There are also many other artisans there with everything from jewelry to clothing to obsidian knives. It’s really a fun spot to check out for both tourists and locals alike.
Oh and you can’t forget it’s across the street from the very first Starbucks! It’s crazy how long the line gets but still a good stop before heading into the market. Dont’ forget your souvenir mug!!
