An hour at Pike Place Market

I drove mom down to Seattle for the weekend. She has an anesthesiology meeting she’d like to attend, and me? I like to get out of town.
Got to the Renaissance Hotel late afternoon and walked down to Pike Place Market.

There’s that Sleepless in Seattle romance here…do you know what I mean?

The last rays of the sun were just filtering in, and so I sat and watched the sunset.

And then I walked around the market.

Oh my goodness, the fish throwers are a funny bunch.

And the fruit is so sumptuous.

I really wanted to buy a handful of these beautiful chantrelles, a bit of chicken, a little cream, a pinch of salt and pepper. Oh what a yummy dinner that would make. Alas, there’s no kitchen in my hotel room.

I walked on to a little cheese maker. Beecher’s artisan cheeses.

I absolutely could not resist a small tub of cheese curds and a small wedge of their signature Flagship cheese. Now that I can have without a kitchen.

Next stop was Lamplight books. No I can’t possibly walk past a secondhand book seller without going in.
I picked up three books: Back on Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber, A Summer of Hummingbirds by Christopher Benfey, and Memoirs of a Dutiful Daughter by Simone de Beauvoir. They seem like good books to me. Anyone read any of them?

It was already getting dark when I walked out of the market and I turned back to the hotel…

…up the lovely, glowing streets of Seattle.
