markets, clams, mussels and fish

August 28, 2010 |  Category:   life Seattle & the NW travels


Pike Place Market is crazy crowded, even on a weekday, but even though you think you might skip the visit, you just know that in the end, you have to end up going. We bought a whole bunch of clams, fish, mussels and corn from the market and cooked them in one pot for dinner that evening. Because we’re staying with friends and family, we’re not so much trying to play tourist as we are just trying to live as we would at home. I could easily imagine living here, I think, but it’s taken at least a few visits to come to this. Mark and I joked around that we could retire here when we are old and no longer working. Either that or Hawaii.

    Wow, I love that atmosphere! Looks like your kids are having a great time as well. When it boils down to 2 choices of where people want to retire and settle, Hawaii is always one of em. lol.
