Good evening everyone! I hope you guys are having a wonderful Saturday! I spent the first part of the day dragging out my pumpkins and setting up the front porch for Halloween. While it is the first day of Fall, it was the upper 80s here and a bit toasty, which has me ready for Fall weather even more so. While I live in the South, I despise heat!!!! I am certainly missing the Washington weather for sure.
Today I am sharing the last day of my Labor Day weekend trip to Washington to visit with my best friend. Day 3 we hit up spots in downtown Seattle and took in all the tourist sights. It was the perfect Seattle weather, overcast and cool. It made for a very comfortable day and I’m glad I got that hoodie from Sharky’s.
Naturally, our first stop would be Pike Place, it wouldn’t be a Seattle vacation without it. We walked through the shops and then Lauren and I stood in the extremely long line to get into the first-ever Starbucks. While everyone passing by laughed at everyone standing in line for “coffee”, we were there for the original logo merchandise! I picked up a new coffee cup for my boyfriend and me, a few souvenirs for the coffee lovers at work, and got a free cold drink bottle.
After Pike’s Place, we drove around to some more infamous sites and then ended up at the Crab Pot for a late lunch. I had the best clam chowder EVER and a super tasty Bloody Mary, a must-stop place for sure.
We ended our day trip to Seattle by taking a Ferry, another first for me. We had a blast just relaxing, enjoying the clearing skies, and catching up on some more beautiful sites. I had to get up early the next morning in preparation for my flight and was sad to see the amazing weekend come to an end. I can’t thank Krise and her family enough for showing me so much of their beautiful home state. I look forward to going back to visit and seeing more! On my flight home, I did finally get to see the top of Mount Rainier!
Thank you so much for stopping by today and I will see you all again soon! Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Fall Ya’ll!
