Records & Bakeries

Day two in Seattle was chilly, but we were able to explore some great areas. We started the morning off with a yummy breakfast from Wild Wheat Cafe in Kent. Afterward, we drove to Pike's Place Market to walk around, see the shops, and take in the atmosphere. I loved seeing all of the local hand makers, artists, and farmers. :) We also made sure to stop at the original Starbucks, snap a few photos, and grab a cup of coffee.


After exploring the markets in Seattle, we made our way West. Our first stop was Easy Street Records. I think we spent over an hour there, just pouring through new and used records. I left with a small loot of some great oldies. I can't wait to play them on my record player at home with Jon!

Afterward, we went to Cafe Nouveau to visit Anica's cousin and eat a late lunch. I tried French Macaroons for the first time in my life and I have to say I was skeptical at first, but pleasantly surprised by their crunchy, chewy, creamy goodness. Since I liked the first one so much, I couldn't help but buy a couple more for the road. ;)

Finally, we concluded our day with a walk on Alki beach and a couple of rented movies from RedBox. 


Today will be another busy day! We are about to leave to catch a ferry, so I'll update you with more pictures later. :) Happy weekend!!

  2. I wish I lived closer to shop and markets, I don't have a car PLUS I live in Ellenwood (super dead).

    When I want to do something cool I get dropped at my sister's!!

    But, happy to see you had a fun productive day in-spite of the weather :)
