Ah, it’s Monday. It seems crazy that this time last week I was in Seattle, eating baby clam linguini in the Pike Place Market. Our vacation flew by, and we crammed a lot of fun into those 4 days. Coming back to 8 orders to package and ship, 7 sessions to edit and 3 albums to design is a bit overwhelming, but totally worth it. Dustin and I stayed with our good friend, Vanessa, who graciously gave us the use of her car to explore the city. We hit “The Market” and “The Needle,” checked out Alki Beach and Golden Gardens, took a Duck Boat Tour with the fabulous Jamie of Cowbelly Pet Photography (she’s awesome and I’m SOO glad we finally got to meet!) Did a bit of wine tasting, toured a chocolate factory, ate cheap sushi and drank good coffee. (No, not even once at Starbucks… which, by the way, seriously IS on every single block)
Seattle Coffee Works served up the best cup of coffee I believe I’ve ever had. I asked for a cafe au lait, but they brewed up something more unique…. I think it was something like an americano with steamed milk or something (I’m not all that coffee-knowledgeable) But yeah. Delish. I liked all the crunchy hippie bakeries and shops, and had my fill of gluten-free, vegan baked goods. I’ve decided that the entire town smells like patchouli and has more hills than anyone should allow.
Thanks to Keith and Trycia for being our super fun vacation buddies! I didn’t shoot as much as I thought I would, but I was happy to get what I did. Here’s a few big collages of my Seattle experience. Enjoy!
