It's hard to believe that it's been a little over three weeks since I returned from Seattle ... it seems a lot longer and shorter! My head is still in the pleasant afternoon we spent at the Pike Place market with my friend Julie pointing out things not to miss ... choosing the perfect lunch place with an even more perfect view ... getting the lowdown on the local restaurant scene from her chef son ... and just taking in all of the colorful stimulation. It's no wonder I can't forget!
At the Pike Place Fish Co they were tossing around fish ... just like they show on the tee-vee! I've been to the fish market in San Francisco ... this place had an entirely different feel to it. It was more of a covered marketplace ... rows and rows of stalls ... permanent shops as well ... some from the early 1900s. Active noisy and exciting!
I couldn't get over the colors there ... in fact my friend and I were sort of having a color contest ... calling out colors as we took the pix to claim them as our own. So fun! I managed to shoot a few rainbows ... just to stay ahead. Competition gets the blood flowing.
After hours of walking around Ispied the coffee mecca ... Starbucks! You know ... it looked a lot like my Starbucks ... same products ... same coffee smell ... same happy baristas writing your name on the cup ... took a quick look around and checked it off the list. It was our last stop before the parking lot but I kept thinking back to something I saw on a shelf in the restaurant. LOL ... keep it real ... enjoy the moment ... hang on to it tight in your memories! What a great great day ... very hard to forget ... and I'm scheming ways to go back!
