Visited Seattle for a long anniversary weekend. We experienced in that December trip heat, cold, rain and snow over just three days.
We were struck by the aromas of wonderful baked goods and quality coffee that wafted through Pike Place Market. Our time in the market in some ways was like a visit to the turn of the 19th/20th Century. We breakfasted twice in the Athenian Seafood Restaurant, a cafe that opened the year of my late father’s birth, 1909. We watched cheese being made at Beecher’s. We joined in the laughter as large fish were flung to others in the market. I guess they have been flinging for a host of decades. Don’t miss Pike Place in the course of your travels.
