Seattle Trip

For those of you that don't know, Chris took me away last weekend to Seattle. We had a wonderful time away together. Some of the things we did over the weekend were sleep whenever we wanted, some shopping and walking around the downtown area. Chris also brought me a Starbucks breakfast every morning as well as booking me for a in-room massage which was wonderful.
One evening we went to this steak house restaurant which also had a live jazz band. We both love jazz music and it was great to listen to it during an amazing dinner. Between the jazz sets this man came in with a saxophone case and the staff all got excited. During the second music set he came up and played, they introduced him as a big name (I don't remember now) from New York. He was very good and we both really enjoyed listening to him.
This is a chair that was in a corner of our room. I loved this chair it was so comfortable and I spent a lot of time sitting here reading and just enjoying the sights of Seattle.
This is the view out of one of our windows.
This is one of the other windows.
Here is a picture of us before we went out for our fancy dinner.
One of the mornings we went for a walk to Pike Place Market. This market is famous for a few things; one is the fish throwing, which I got to say is neat to see. It is also famous for lots of booths run by hippies.(or at least it should be famous for that) My favourite part of Pike Place Market is that it is the place of the original Starbucks. Of course we had to go there and take some pictures.
Our new mugs for home to remind us of our trip.
