As a side note if you haven't ever been to Pike's Place market, it is a huge open public market, a block off the water and it sells just about everything from handmade lovelies to all natural meats and veggies to all sorts of fish, etc. and it's huge and fun! anywho, it felt like a must to eat fresh fish, fried, so we sat at on small stools and pulled up to tiny fish bar and ate. i realize i need to gain control over my love for so much food goodness but i am hoping the discovery phase will wain and I'll slow down talking about food. maybe. but i love it.
sharing this city that is 100% new and unknown to me with my parents and sibs felt fun because i really think there is a lot of good to uncover here and that makes me very hopeful. i do feel i am very much in a honeymoon phase and will be for sometime, both of staying at home and of being in a new place. I think it helps that i also know when i'll be back East for annual Oster beach trip and visit to CLT which is the last two weeks in July. I'll send specs when i book the tics so you can ALL make sure to be around.. ha hahah!
