My brother moved to lovely Bellingham, Washington last year. I went from seeing him and my sis-in-law, nephew and niece two to three times a week to none. I went through withdrawals! My family is pretty tight-knit. It felt like I had an appendage removed. Needless to say I missed them terribly. A trek to the Pacific Northwest was in order and finally came to fruition this week. Two of my kids and I made the trip arriving to Seattle on Tuesday. After hugging my SIL and niece to death we headed to the Seattle Market…
If you are any kind of foodie and watch Food Network, you have no doubt seen the fish throwers at Pike’s Place Fish Market. I didn’t get a shot of them in action. I was a bit to slow with the phone cam. It’s pretty fun to just watch the guys in action. The crowd really gets into it. Me included.
Because I am a coffee girl we had to go to the original Starbucks. SWEET!
My SIL and I found a French Bakery. We took home Pain au Chocolat for a sweet treat. I’m in heaven.
Le Panier was fabulous. I was in transported to France for a moment. It was hard to choose just one delectable treat. I make tarts for dessert at home. After seeing the offerings here I think I’m going to up my game.
What a great start to our vacation!
