We woke up bright and early to enjoy our free continental breakfast, then putzed around the hotel room, relaxing and researching for the upcoming days. After checking out, we headed into Seattle to see the city. We hit up the Pike Place Market first. The market was really cool to see, though very busy… which perhaps was a bit much after the solitude of the wilderness. We had a killer lunch at Uli’s Famous Sausage before heading off to grab some coffee at Caffe Ladro , taking a look at the Space Needle, then wandering around the Olympic Sculpture Park and walking by the “gum wall”
After getting back in the car, we headed to check out the Freemont Troll that lives under a bridge and meet up with Dave’s cousin Teri and her husband Justin.
We ate dinner with them at The Ballroom which consisted of the biggest pizza we had ever seen…. 28”! We definitely could not finish the pizza, and wound up giving the leftovers to a man begging for food down the street… it totally made his day and ours!
They took us on a bit of a driving tour around Seattle neighborhoods and parks. We made plans to meet up with them the next day to check out a farmer’s market and more of the area. We headed off to our second hotel room… which turned out to be MUCH nicer then our previous one
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD MATUNIS!!!
