My Seattle visit

Well I am back home.. have gone to work again...and trying to adjust to the time change. I had a wonderful time in the Seattle area and really didn't want to come back to Florida hahah. As far as knitting goes, I didn't get much knitting done on the projects I brought with me but made a hat for my son, some dish clothes and a little crochet pouch for an i-pod and head phones. Mostly I enjoyed the company of my sons and their friends and all there is to see in Seattle. I didn't make it to the local Stitch n' bitch because I thing we were burned out from sight seeing. Anyway here are some pictures of my vacation. 
 A day of hiking to the beach. We had to wade through a little tunnel that was full of icy cold water. I loved all the drift wood on the beach. It was a beautiful sunny day.

 The next day it was a little rainy so we went and ate at the Korean B-B-Q. I have never been to one and all I can say is that it was awesome and yummy. The next day it was off to the yarn shops. This was the first one we visited in Edmonds. It was really cute but we arrive right before the shop was closing so we took a quick look but didn't purchase anything.

 A drift wood whale on Edmonds beach. I didn't take pictures of the yarn shop that I actually purchased yarn in... probably because the shop was so fabulous that I forgot to. It is the yarn shop in Mill Creek called Main Street yarn.

 Yarn goodies.
 Game night. We played Stone age. I actually got that game.. some take a few times playing to get the hang of them.
 Mid week projects. Finishing the Simple sprinkle for my son, Lace leaf cardi back, and a boy beanie.
 Visited the local DSW. A beautiful new store... very large!
 A day trip to the city of Seattle. We parked and road the trolly to Pikes Place market. What an adventure.

 Yes.. this is where they throw the fish. It was a horribly busy day there, but I did see a fish fly through the air.
 The notorious gum wall.. I don't think I need to say more. We were in awe of all the gum stuck on the wall...

 My son's room mate used to drive and live on this tug boat. We got to go inside. It's like a little house trailer inside with 3 floors. So cool.
 More food... This is Sushi land. Little plates of sushi travel around on a conveyer belt and you choose the ones you want. That was pretty fun. Next there was PHO. Yummy is all I have to say. This was the first time I tried it and its really good if you like fragrant soup with rice noodles and I love noodles.
 I had time to visit Edmunds college. Both of my son's attend there. Other things we did were visit Trader Joes and some more walking around Mill Creek and more game nights and just spent time together. I had a great time. (^_^)
