Read all about my wine country travels here.
We left Olympia and headed back to Seattle to see all the tourist at – Pikes Place Market. (just to check it out) It reminded me of San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Warf but better since it also had a farmer’s market. – The best part were the peonies that were in season everywhere – so beautiful!
Had to take a pic of this restaurant – the spelling was close to the spelling of my new last name!
We relaxed with locals and tourists in the alleyway at The Tasting Room for a relaxing flight of wine.
The Watson Kennedy store’s visual merchandising was so well orchestrated – it made me want to take everything home with me.
We had a drink and snack at Quinns. Great for humans of all ages.
We ended our night at Spinasse – we were so hungry we ate before we took a pic of our dinner! Delicious italian food – fun for large groups to sit at the communal tables (we sat at the bar).
Exhausted…we headed back to our hotel room to get a good night’s sleep for Day 4.
Day 2 we visited the town of Olympia. It was fun to kick back and visit relatives.
It was beautiful to see all the produce and flowers that were in season. Leah had some fresh picked fennel from her garden.
Sara and Michale have adopted chickens in their backyard…a great way to get fresh eggs if you can keep up with them!
Peonies werre everywhere in Seattle. These in the photo are from my mother-in-law’s garden. So beautiful I wished I could take them on the plane home.
I recently visited Seattle and have some fun tales to tell.
We ate at Anchovies & Olives for dinner – the website has no menu and no reservations, so we just showed up. Not something we usually feel comfortable doing.
Since it was late – we had no wait! (unlike most SF restaurants, but we were in Seattle now.)
We stayed at Hotel 1000 – I got a kick out of the bath tub – the water came out of the ceiling!
Cause’ our parties always have the best food, wine and gals! Thanks to Boulettes Larder (and Samantha) for a delicious private dinner in their kitchen…
and cheers to Paul for selecting the best wines!
