Over Halloween weekend Brian and I went up to Seattle for a few days. We stayed in an awesome Airbnb right in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. It was around the corner from tons of coffee, food and bars, and an easy downhill walk to the water, Pike Place Market and downtown restaurants and shopping.
We got lucky with some amazing weather that was all full of sunshine and warmth. The temperature was a high of 65 degrees on both days we were there. Coincidentally, it was the same temperature in Austin because a “cold front” came in. Folks in Seattle were celebrating with picnics and paddle boarding on Lake Union while our friends in Austin pulled out their beanies and coats.
The sun was out in abundance lighting up the fabulous northwestern fall colors.
When we weren’t enjoying nature, we were refueling with coffee…
Just kidding!! More coffee!!!
Our friends Mark and Rachel were amazing tour guides and helped us pack a whole lot into a little slice of time. In two days, we saw:
Giant Popsicle Art in Belltown
The Weed Store
Pike Place Market
The Space Needle
On-Air Broadcasting and Coffee at La Marzocco Cafe
Inside the KEXP Seattle Radio Station
Starbucks Reserve Roastery & Tasting Room
Beautiful Rainbows on Capitol Hill
Dogs in Jammies
The Jimi Hendrix Statue at Broadway & Pine
Gas Works Park and Lake Union
The Troll Who Lives Under the Aurora Bridge in Fremont
(At Troll Avenue, of course)
Discovery Park and Mount Rainier (through the haze)
…And tons of good food, boozy drinks and fun times!
