Seattle Part 1: The Seafood

I have taken an unintended hiatus from blogging lately, simply because I have not had much time to go adventuring with my camera in recent weeks. That all changed this weekend. We took a trip to Seattle, where there were many pictures to be taken. For starters, we toured around Seattle's world famous Pike Place market.

Needless to say, the massive farmer's market was photo heaven for me. I'll be posting a few photos from the trip over the next few days, but I'll start off with the sight that greeted us upon entering the market--seafood galore.

The massive salmon packed in ice were everywhere. Flying through the air sometimes, in fact; tossed by folks who had clearly invested years of practice to perfect their aim. It gave a whole new meaning to "catching fish."

All this seafood photography led to an irresistible craving, so although it was only 11:00 a.m. I dragged my husband to Emmet Watson's oyster bar for some "breakfast" oysters. Yum!

We did the tourist thing and tried to get a cappuccino from the very first Starbucks store ever, but their espresso machine was broken. Not so impressive.

Oysters at 11... actually quite tasty! There must be somewhere nearby where we can find seafood like that, no? Just imagine all the recipes we could try!
