I slipped away for a quick weekend escape to Seattle. An hour and change drive + a 35 minute ferry ride deposits me into another world. I adore small town life. But sometimes I crave time in the city.
I knew there would be lights to see.
A wall of antique sewing machines-an unexpected sight.
This delightful, joyful procession caught me by surprise.
So Much Yarn shop’s holiday display. Cute! I’ll likely pick up a live tree this year. I could make some mini skein ornaments.
I sauntered down to the market at perhaps the worst time. It was packed. They were lighting the tree.
Watched the gals at Beechers make cheese then indulged in a dish of Mac n cheese.
Indulged in a Top Pot donut. Mmmm!
This was interesting. There were two mounted police training their horses. They were repeatedly stopping and backing them up. A yappy little dog started in on them and they intentionally walked over next to it. I can’t believe how tolerant those horses were of traffic and that dog. Incredible!
Beautiful stonework on the Federal building.
Though I enjoy my rare trips over there, it’s still great to cross back over to home.
