That afternoon we made our way north to Seattle Centre, where we admired the view from the Space Needle and enjoyed watching families play in this spectacular fountian.
Last Sunday afternoon, overwhelmed by the tedium of the week, my husband and I settled onto the couch, laptap between us, in search of adventure. Before the tedious mood lifted we had booked ferry tickets and a hotel -- 48 hours worth of escape. Our destination: Seattle. It's not too far away, but far enough; and we had never been there.
Our search for Saturday morning breakfast took us to Pike Place Market were we indulged in breakfast tacos and eggs benedict, then passed the morning among the fruit vendors, florists, artisans and street musicians. There were rows and rows of Mother's Day flowers.
