We’ve been home the past few weeks (getting the house ready for fall, baking a lot and enjoying movie nights in our new home), but October turned into a big travel month for us and we’re kicking if off with a trip to Seattle (Jeremy’s been dying to go). He had a work meeting there this week so I met up with him late Friday night and our “Best of Seattle” tour began. We stayed at the Four Seasons which was walking distance from the Public Market (and where we spent most of our time).
Our favorite part of Seattle was the food… our top meals/snacks are below:
– Fish and Chips (with Vueve Cliquot) at Steelhead Diner
– Dungeness Crab Fried Egg Sandwich with Avocado and Beecher Cheese (and a side of KILLER hash browns and fabulous Bloody Mary) at Seatown
– Wagyu Beef, Caesar Salad and French Onion Soup (paired with Metropolitan Reserve 2006 Blend) at Metropolitan Grill
– Pistachio and Hazelnut Macaroons at Le Panier
– Mini Maple Bacon Donuts at the Public Market
Aside from the overindulging in the food department we tried to be cultured for once and took in a lot of the great museums Seattle has to offer. We spent the morning at SAM (Seattle Art Museum) and then worked our way to Chilulay Gardens to see the gorgeous glass sculptures (the same artist that created the beautiful flowers in the lobby of the Bellagio).
The shopping was pretty amazing too and we couldn’t forget top stop by the Nordstrom flagship store! Speaking of flagships… our trip couldn’t be complete without Starbucks from the first Starbucks ever (not that cool unfortunately).
We lucked out with the weather, only being graced with rain when we were indoors (HUGE plus), so we tried to take the gorgeous skyline in as often as possible (we even hot tubbed in the rooftop infinity pool!
I’m so glad we were able to see this amazing city, but we definitely we’re smiling when we landed back in warm and sunny California! Until next time Hunter boots…!
