We have been so busy between jobs, shopping for and maintaining our mall space, and the theater production Tom Sawyer that Jonathan just completed that we have almost forgotten to take a little time together for ourselves. Jon got invited to go camping at the beach so Debbie and I decided that this would be a perfect opportunity to run off together for a couple of days. We jumped on line and shopped around for a place to stay and finally Debbie chose this place.
We decided not to stay in "Downtown" Seattle because for some reason they are able to command a premium for the rooms. We drove a couple of miles into Bellevue and had a very nice room for much less. Perhaps with enough advanced notice one might aquire lodging near the city center for a lot less but this was a spur of the moment decision. Here's what we got for the money.
After getting settled in this afternoon, we headed over to Pike street and wandered among the the masses of humanity. It was kind of fun. Perhaps tomorrow we'll go back and make some purchases. The fish looks wonderful
How about those wonderfully colorful vegetables and fruits.
And mushrooms! Hey Rowleys! Look at the price on those morels! Dude!
Well, all of a sudden it was dinner time and I saw this sign.
Who knows? It could be fun! And it was. There were even healthy choices. We had a nice tomato and vinegrette bruchetta for an appetizer and we each had a salad. Debbie took a cobb with a bit of ranch dressing and I took something called the anti-cobb. It was similar to a cobb salad but with more fruit. It was served with a basalmic tangerine vinegrette. Not bad. I took some pics but they were a little blurry. Oh well, here they are anyway.
Oh yeah! When you go to the Hard Rock Cafe, you have to buy a souvenir. Here's mine.
Wow! This post is going long. Let me conclude for now and add more tomorrow or at least soon. I mean there are some weird things here that you've got to see! Talk to you then!
