We decided to walk down to Pike Place Market area for breakfast. We found a great little French place near the market, and decided it looked just perfect for a leisurely breakfast. The menu was entirely in French--so it was good practice!
I had two poached eggs on garlic croutons, with a red wine/foie gras sauce, mushrooms and pearl onions. It came with a side of pommes frites--for breakfast!! It was wonderful! Here are a few pics of our breakfast:
Janna joined us for breakfast--here she is munching on our pommes frites: (please excuse the blurriness)
Isn't she cute? And she is just as sweet and thoughtful as she is pretty. I can't believe she is all grown up, though!
After several more cups of coffee and our delicious breakfast, we set off to explore the market. We stopped at one of my favorite stores, Sur La Table--a wonderful kitchen/cooking store. Of course, I didn't leave empty handed!
We crossed the street into the Market, and explored all the wonderful food stalls and artist booths. Here we are!
After we finished at the Market, we walked a few blocks up hill to Nordstroms and Macys--we power shopped!! We all found just what we were looking for, and as Donna said--we contributed to Seattle's economic stimulus, for sure!
Sadly, it was time for Donna to get to the airport. After a sweet goodbye to Janna, we got my car from valet parking, and found our way out of downtown Seattle with no mishaps. I dropped Donna off at the airport with another sad goodbye, and managed to get out of the airport WITHOUT 4 return trips to the terminal (ha, Deb!)
It was just the best of times, and I think we should make it a yearly tradition!
