While we were sitting outside Melissa looked up and saw this:
|The awning is filled with empty cigarette packs. Bottom picture is zoomed in to show detail.|
I knew the whole time I wanted to get the six egg omelet. Melissa got a "short stack' of pancakes.
|This picture does not do the sheer size of the pancakes.|
|This is the six egg omelet. Again the picture does not do it justice.|
|The aftermath. I couldn't finish. but it was a damn good time trying.|
After Beth's we walked really slowly to the car (cause our full bellies), plotted a course to the Pike Place Market. After driving all of the Alaskan Way Viaduct, ending up on East Marginal Way, we finally got turned around and found the exit for the market.
Now you might remember we went last year (if you don't remember, here's the obligatory link to a look back at last years Pike Place Market trip here.) Melissa actually was sick when we went, so we couldn't enjoy the trip as much as we could have. Cut to this year, we had an absolute blast. We actually found the Pike Place parking garage this year, which made it so much better for walking to the market.

|Obligatory Gum Wall picture.|
|The "super professional artistic" attempt at a picture. I actually like it a lot.|
Next we had to take a picture of the sign.
|It's a must to take the picture of the sign.|
Last year we wanted to go the very first Starbucks but we couldn't find it. This year we asked the information desk and we were on our way.
So an hour wait in the Starbucks line and we almost lost our spot because no one said hey you might want to stay in the line you have been sitting in for an hour to buy anything. That was about to piss me off but we got to get back in line and buy our tumbler.
|So I saw this when I was checking out a t shirt booth. Random mannequin on the roof. Check.|
|The sheer number of people was absolutely crazy.|
|The shoe museum.|
|The "other" market sign. It never gets any love.|
This weekend was absolutely amazing! We both had a blast. We had a great adventure. Even with the driving directions, GPS issues and being turned around a lot, it was memorable. I was very proud of ourselves for going out of comfort zone, trying new things and trying old things again. I will say for the record, I never, ever want to go to Seattle again for anything, but this trip was worth it. Bottom line, get out of your comfort zone, try something new or old and enjoy life. Till next time.
