Before heading back to Montreal, we had about 24 hours in Seattle. We arrived in the afternoon after a beautiful drive along the Olympic National Park mountain range. We dropped off our stuff at our AirB&B in west Seattle before heading to Ballard for the evening. Luckily, before heading out west, a colleague of mine showed me this blog and our evening was already planned. It was an evening of oysters, market fresh food, and gelato that I will never forget.
The next morning, we got up early and headed straight to Pike Place Market so as to join all the other tourists...
For breakfast, we left the market marched all the way to the original Top Pot Doughnuts for a treat and a coffee - can you tell we have a sweet tooth?
We spent the afternoon poking around the shops in west Seattle and relaxing on Alki beach before saying goodbye to the west coast.
A and I really enjoyed our holiday. Something about the sea, sky and mountains puts a lot of mundane day-to-day bothers into perspective, don't you find? xo
