Seattle, Part 1!

I feel like I've been gone from blog land for so long! Life has been crazy busy wonderful and I bounced myself off to Seattle for a few days recently. Felt great to get away from everything and really devote my time to relaxing. And eating. Such good food in that city! So here are the highlights from my first few days:

Day 1: An 8 hour drive west. Thankfully the landscape changes often enough to keep it interesting. Mountains, windy passes, big lakes, farm land, Columbia gorge, wind turbine farms, Snoqualamie, and then into the city. I love driving in fast traffic! Bob and weave...

I showed up at my friend's house and was welcomed with a cold beer and a comfy couch. Whew! What a day. That night we enjoyed El Matador. The best tequila bar in the area. Great food and fun atmosphere. Then home for a dip in the pool and a bottle of champagne.

Day 2: Headed down to Pike's Market in the morning to eat piroshkis. Mmm. Mingled with the locals and tourists alike as we checked out all the booths and shops. Sunshine and clear blue sky. Did not expect that in Seattle!

Next up was the Seattle Art Museum and Nick Cave's latest exhibit. AWESOME! So cool to see great art. Wandered until we were too tired to go on. Off to the University district next to find a great little German restaurant: Schultzy's. Best bratwurst ever!

We capped the night off with food at Meze, a Mediterranean place. Some of the best food ever tasted. The waitress was a hoot! Then to bed early so we'd be well rested for our third day. I'll write more later! :)


  1. Your trip sounds like such a great time with a good friend. But I am glad you are home now. LYS

  2. Glad you had such a nice time here...and it looks like the sun was out for you too...bonus!!
    I'll have to check out Schultzy's! My fave German deli closed and I haven't known where to go for my German food fix since...thank you, I'm thrilled to hear about it!!!
