Seattle, Washington

On Thursday morning we started our drive to Seattle, Washington.  Seattle was gorgeous but dreary.  We decided to check into the hotel first before exploring.  We then headed to Kerry Park, a place to overlook the city.  We got quite a stunning view of downtown Seattle and the Space Needle as well as Elliott Bay.

Then we got back to the van and headed to Spud Fish & Chips, Seattle’s oldest fast food restaurant.  Our neighbor suggested Spud when she found out that Seattle was on our itinerary – she visits Seattle every year and makes a stop at Spud during each visit.  Spud is a small mom & pop type of restaurant overlooking the bay.  We sat in their upstairs seating area by the window and watched people rollerblade and jog down the sidewalk and play on the beach while enjoying our yummy fish & chips.  I had wanted to hit Pike’s Market but they were closed by the time we arrived, and unfortunately we only had one night in Seattle, so we didn’t have time to explore the city further.  What we did get to see was beautiful, and I will definitely hit Pike’s Market if we ever get to go back.
