I just returned from a work trip to Seattle. At first, I was filled with dread at being gone over the weekend, but after getting a taste of the city, I felt really fortunate to have the chance to see it.
We stayed downtown at the Edgewater (famous for this photo) where we had fireplaces in our rooms and killer waterfront views.
The city is beautiful and wonderfully romantic this time of year. S and I are already planning a return trip.
Here are a few of my most touristy snaps:
Pike's Market where we wandered under...
browsed the famous fish market (get a load of those crabs!)
and even saw some burly gentlemen toss a few of these guys around.
I fell in love with the bounty of fresh flowers available for ridiculous prices (that bouquet is only $5!?). We also ate fresh chocolate covered cherries...a Washington state staple.
