We flew out on a Saturday and came home on a Tuesday. Our first day we explored Pike Place Market and Post Alley where we found the gum wall, which is one of the most disgusting places I have every visited. It is exactly what it sounds like - a wall covered in gum. Luckily we had dinner before we got there. We ate at the Crab Pot, right on the water. They dumped a bowl of seafood and corn on the cob in front of us and we just dug in, with butter dripping down our arms.
The next day was a tasting tour through Pike Place Market, and a ferry ride out to Bainbridge island. I think the ferry ride and Bainbridge Island was one of my favorite parts of the trip. We had divine ice cream at Mora's and I could have spent hours in the Eagle Harbor Book Company store there.
Monday was a trip to the EMP Museum, which had displays about Horror Movies, Science Fiction, and Fantasy. There was also a large section on Music. And a birthday steak dinner for Darren at Sullivan's Steak House. The. best. steak. ever.
And on our last day, we took a shuttle tour of the surrounding areas, including Snowqualmie Falls, the Freemont Troll, and Kerry Park. And on the plane we got a great view of Mt. Rainier.
