Pioneer Square & Pike Place Market...

Yesterday I got to drive shotgun (i.e. I was sitting in the passenger seat) in this fun little sports car all the way to Seattle and back. I felt like a movie star...  <wink>

My friend Kim had some errands to run at Pioneer Square and invited me along: yes please!  {smile} Here we go...

What a beautiful area with lots of old brick buildings and gorgeous old greenery. (i.e. trees) I also found a clog store but oh boy, those prices were steep: $135... {not smile}

Those blue ones were my favorites!
After we were done with our errands we drove a little bit further and parked right at Pike Place Market. (and saw this truck along the way which reminded me of home of course...)

With the incredibly nice weather we are still experiencing (40 days in a row without any precipitation and  still counting!) it was of course extremely busy, but Kim knew the way and before we knew it we were sitting at a tiny counter among all the touristy crowds and had delicious 'blackened salmon on organic salad plus garlic bread' platters in front of us: Yum!


After all that fun it was time to go home again. Tomorrow I will show you the pics I took along the CowRoad, which was it usual beautiful self with all that sunshine.

Right now I'm going back in the yard and in the sun. We have a long weekend now (Labor Day on Monday) and by golly, I will enjoy it! {smile}

Cheers!
