Seattle Day 3!

The 3rd Day in Seattle was great because we took the ferry over to Bainbridge Island from Downtown Seattle. It's absolutely adorable with lots of fun little shops. The ferry ride was only 20-30 minutes and it's 7 dollars round trip! We ate at this restaurant right near the end of the main strip of downtown Bainbridge, right near the docks.
We walked along the little trail they had along the water and took pictures of the sail boats and the rock sculptures they had.

So peaceful... it made me wish I had the money to buy a house right on the water to escape to...such a quaint little town.

For lunch we had some great seafood. Calamari, fried oysters (YUM) and clam chowder. What a great meal it was too!

After lunch we headed back through downtown and explored some of the cute shops they had.
I loved the "heart" store.

We got tea and fudge and a bunch of fun things to eat for our friends back home. It was a wonderful Washington feast.

Since the order of my pictures got a little wacky I'll have to back track a bit so bare with me. :)
This is the view from the ferry ride.

Before we caught the ferry we walked down to the Bank of America building in downtown Seattle so we could go to the top and get Starbucks and check out the view.
On the way we came across this gorgeous church with a red door. I just loved it and had to snag a bunch of pictures.

On the right is the Bank of America building from the outside. On the left is the view. Can I just say this was probably one of the best pieces of advice given to us. For less than 10 dollars you can go to the top of the building to the view deck, on the 60th floor. There is also a Starbucks in the building that is on the 46th floor or something like that. The Starbucks has a great view too. Great thing about it though is that for half the cost of the Space Needle you get to see a view that is much higher than it! Plus you can see the Space needle itself.
These were just a few of the pictures from the top.
Next stop: Dinner on the Pier near the ferry dock. Had some wonderful raw oysters that literally tasted like ocean they were so fresh! I actually really miss them right now haha.

The gorgeous view from our dinner table. Right at Sunset
After dinner we walked through empty Pike's Place and took pictures before heading home for the night. Had to go to bed early cause the next day we were off to Vancouver!

Well that was our last day in Seattle. If you ever travel to Seattle definitely do the ferry to Bainbridge and skip the Space needle in place of the Bank of America building. One of the greatest tips we got. Eventually I'll get the pictures of Vancouver up here. I promise! Hope everyone is having a great week so far!

  4. Oh. My. Lord.

    Delicious yarn AND tea all in one store? Fresh oysters?

    I'm pretty sure this would be a perfect day in my life. Note to self: Must visit Seattle.
