As you may have figured out, we extended our stay in Seattle a few more days. We are working from here during the day and playing at night. Today is our anniversary, as well. It just so happens that we got engaged while on a trip to Seattle to attend Patrick and Nga’s wedding. Monte popped the question and gave me a ring in a waterfront restaurant here – Elliott’s Oyster House on Pier 56. Nice memories. So…. since we were in town, we just had to go there for dinner tonight to celebrate.
After work we popped over to Seattle on the ferry. The mountain was out, though a bit hazy.
Whenever riding the ferry, I buy a bag of cheetos to feed to the seagulls. Monte had them eating out of his hand.
In Seattle, we walked down the waterfront for a while. At Elliott’s, we had a great table by the window overlooking the Sound and watched the sailboats and ferries go by as the sun set. We sampled as much of the seafood as possible – oysters, crab cakes, scallops, salmon…..the food and wine was delicious.
Afterwards we walked up and down the waterfront on the way back to the ferry. The weather was great. The first shot in this post is of one of the horses on an antique carousel inside of Miner’s Landing on Pier 57.
A lovely evening indeed. Goodnight Seattle…
