Day 28 – Seattle
Finally we made it all the way to Seattle! I’m going to let the pictures speak for themselves….
Breakfasting took place at The Crumpet Shop at Pike’s Place. Best crumpets I have EVER had! ^^^
Sarah generously hosted us during our stay in Seattle. She was amazing!! We can’t thank her enough for showing us a fantastic time in town!
The afternoon was spent at Gasworks Park, where we walked and sat and enjoyed the gorgeous afternoon. The park is located on the north edge of Lake Union, offering a perfect view of the city. The grounds were covered in picnic-ers and nappers. We watched the boats sailing on the lakes, float-planes taking off, and even a few weddings taking place!
For dinner we had the best cubans we’ve ever tasted. If you get the chance while in Seattle you MUST go to Paseo. Make sure you have cash. You won’t be disappointed. And many thanks to Ilke, one of our Seattle guides, for take us to Paseo and showing us around the ‘hood! ^^^
We ended the day by heading to the Seattle Center Movies at the Mural. We were excited to watch a movie under the Seattle stars but as we headed towards the Space Needle where the movie was being shown, we passed the absolutely unreal exterior of the Experience Music Project. I really wished we had had time to check it out but it was closed when we arrived.
Watching “Hugo” under the Space Needle was the perfect way to end our West Coast adventures. We couldn’t have asked for a better close to our northward climb before beginning our trek back East.
