Seattle recap

Standard

Hello blog world!  Sorry I have been MIA for awhile.  I have however, been crossing things off my list!  This month, I took the PCCN and passed so I am now officially a certified nurse in progressive care, woo hoo!  I also managed to complete a non-wobbly yoga handstand!

We took a family vacation to Seattle last week and after seeing Alisha’s awesome yoga poses in cool places, I took advantage of the gorgeous Washington scenery to do a few.   yoga

 

 

We enjoyed a lot of awesome coffee and tea, the two places we visited the most were Stumptown and Zoka.

We visited the famous Pike Place Market, crossed off my goal to do a winery run (that turned out to be on the street and didn’t have free wine 😦 ), explored Olympic National Park and enjoyed beautiful views.

Seattle

From top left corner clockwise: Crescent Lake, Downtown Seattle, West Point lighthouse at Discovery Park, Chihuly Garden and Glass.

Meals included lots of fresh seafood, mainly Dungeness crab, and fresh produce-including roadside blackberries.

From left to right: Heirloom tomato salad with crab at Tom Douglas’ Etta’s, Crab cake benny at Barking Frog, Blackberries everywhere, Egg scramble with housemade sausage at Portage Bay Cafe (thanks to Kristin).  I would recommend all of these as well as a couple more I put on my travel restaurant page.

Thanks to all the recommendations of great places to try!
