Seattle Visit

I recently had the privilege of visiting a very dear friend out in Seattle. I only had four days to see this fantastic city, and we made the best of it! I couldn't get over how lush and beautiful the pacific northwest is - such amazing trees and modest, carefully maintained bungalows and well designed townhouses and condos. I would absolutely live there if it wasn't so far from friends and family.

Before I left I hunted around for some suggestions of what to see and do, and this guide from the Tea & Cookies blog helped tremendously!

View from the Space Needle!

I loved the Dale Chihuly exhibit - like being in Wonderland!

You can get a discounted ticket if you purchase for both the Space Needle and the Chihuly exhibit.
They're both worth it!

The famous Public Market of course.

Dinner at the Walrus and Carpenter - Shellfish heaven. This is one of those great restaurants that you wish you could linger all night....

(Barbie Wigs!) Excellent junk shopping in the Snohomish area, bought a lot of adorable vintage hankies.

View of the Space Needle at Volunteer Park

Ballard Farmer's Market - veggies for dinner!

Lovely long walk through Discovery Park

Drinks and pinball at the Unicorn (early before the party crowd got going).

Relaxing Ferry Ride to Bainbridge Island

Super fun Underground Tour, Seattle has a fascinating, strange history.

And of course, amazing coffee from Vivace!
