{Seattle: Day 2}

Thursday, June 24, 2010

Today we ...

Started off the day with a Chai Latte from Victrola Coffee.

Met Brett who took us on a food & cultural tour of Pikes Market.

Filled our bellies at the Daily Dozen Doughnut Company.

Drank Ceylon Spice Tea and learned about Saffron. Did you know it is the most expensive spice in the world? ($2,800 per pound). That's a lot of Benjamin's.

We also saw beautiful flowers.

Watched the boys throw fish.

Walked on purple boxes of amazingness.

Ate raspberries a la opening montage of Amelie.

Tried handmade cheese at Beecher's.

Sampled the best clam chowder and seafood bisque we've EVER had.

And fell in love with these buskers outside of the original Starbucks.

After our tour we stopped by Patagonia and picked up the one thing we forgot to pack ... our beloved Frisbee.

Then we walked to Belltown Pull-Apart and rented bicis.

And rode to Gas Works Park which made me so happy.

Ps, isn't Husband sexy in his helmet?

After tossing the bee, we visited the Fremont Troll.

And went to Homegrown for our long dreamed about Reuben sammy.

After lunch, we maybe might have stopped by Top Pot for a Maple bar.

And got ice cream at Molly Moon's near Capitol Hill. Maybe ...

While walking back to our hotel we saw Seattle in waffle form.

And noticed three upcoming shows at the Paramount. Please tell us that some of you are WSP, Avett Bros, and Neil Young fans? This may have just sealed the deal on a west coast move (in our minds of course).

Tomorrow we leave for Alaska. Here's to eating our way through another state.

Eating your way through any city/state/country = MONEY. We very often plan our visits around our bellies. So much fun! How was Top Pot? I've seen them on the tee-vee and they look very tasty.

Loving this as much as I loved you and Twinners in Hawaii.... now can you please pass me a few doughnuts and a maple bar my coffee needs company!

Oh my goodness, I love cheese! The cheese picture = in love :).

Fun photos! Looks like you're having a great time! I always wondered how they make such pretty designs on top of latte's. Gosh, I wish I were that talented!

dear today's letters: twinner awoke to the most incredible photos of seattle part dos and decided that it maybe might be a good idea to follow in your footy steps from now on, just to catch the leftover joy you may be leaving behind you, hidden in bookshelves, bici cranks, and empty clam chowder sample cups. seattle? i love you... e&t? i love you more*

ps. see you in alaska, a few virtual steps behind... love, bubby

Gas Works looks so cool! Your posts make me happy :-)

sara said...

I don't often have the ability to check your posts daily, so I am often scrolling down to find the last post I read. Does it make me a complete and total dork that I try really hard to close my eyes and just barely peek when I think I am there so I don't spoil the pictures in the posts I've yet to read? Uh, yeah. I thought so. :D

totally worth it, though! I love your posts. Will miss reading while you're in Alaska. Have fun! Eat good food! Make a lot of fun memories. You guys are smart to do all of this now before you have kids. Though I suspect that kids wouldn't stop you from doing this, either! :) That thought makes me happy, too.

K I'm babbling! Have fun!

my favorite was the dog chillin on the red couch in the bike shop :) and the cutie donuts :)
love you guys! Can't wait to one day travel to Peru with you 2!

Melissa said...

You guys are awesome.

Chrys said...

Could you guys be any cuter? It's so ridiculous.

I always click on your blog first in Reader, btw.

And I love that y'all are having such a blast. Please continue.

akd, one day we will toss the disc at gas works after we hit up homegrown in fremont. miss you, friend.

twinner, today we left hidden joy for you in a locomotive headed up the white pass, in timo's beard that keeps getting longer, and our pan that helped us find gold. ps, hearing your voice today made my insides do riverdance. love you**

maria, sending lots of love to SA. xoxo

sara, we hope to still be as adventurous when we have kids. we've been inspired by all the new moms on our ship with their bambinos :)

chrys & melissa, thanks for your sweet comments. continuing ... xoxo!

AMELIE - OMGoodness this film - I love it! I've been to Abbesses Metro station which is the film and also I've been to Montmatre/Sacre Coeur where alot of the film was filmed (yup i so make sense!)

Fremont Troll - this makes an appearance in 10 Things I Hate About You - yes combined with my comment about 5 minutes ago I am such a film geek lol.
