|No wonder why they call Pike Place Market the “soul of Seattle”, aisles and aisles of the most beautiful local produce, flowers, artisan vendors and hand crafted gifts, over 100 places to indulge when hungry, and the most gorgeous fish this Midwesterner has ever seen!|
|And yes, they do throw fish there, in fact my husband caught a 20lb salmon that was thrown to him, thank goodness he caught it!|
|I’m a big fan of Dale Chihuly and couldn’t wait to visit Chihuly Garden and Glass to see his work up close. Glass artist extraordinaire, Chihuly is known for his large architectural installations, you might have seen the ceiling in the hotel Bellagio in Vegas where he installed over 2000 hand-blown glass elements.|
|One of my favorite exhibits he did was Chihuly over Venice, where he hung the most amazing glass chandeliers over the canals and piazzas in Venice, breathtaking!|
|The picture really doesn’t do this justice, this boat was over 10ft long filled with magnificent glass works!|
|The museum has his works inside and outside in a garden and it’s located right near the Space Needle as you can see in the picture.|
|His colors are just amazing!|
|We went to wineries and waterfalls and visited the the beautiful Washington coast.|
|And how could I not talk about the food! This IS a food blog after all! Here’s a small glimpse of some of the food we consumed.
Fresh wild salmon, amazing halibut, ling cod, crab cakes, clams, fish and chips, fabulous crab sandwiches on sourdough, chowder, chowder and more chowder, marionberry pies, we even stopped in at Salumi and had porchetta sandwiches, but mainly we were all about the fish.
Would I visit Seattle again? Most definitely!
