In the summer, we love visiting the local ballpark for a game. Luckily the Mariners were playing the second night we were in town. And it was even better because they had fireworks after the game. It rained a little at the end, but it was a good time.
Our next food adventure of note was at Pike Place. We enjoyed some Russian pastries. They were quite tasty! The line was long and I was surprised that Charles agreed to stand in it, but it moved fast.
My co-worker, who used to live in Seattle, recommended that we try Ivar's. They have several locations in Seattle...some more fast food and some sit-down. We walked by Acres of Clams while near the Aquarium and decided to have lunch. I do not eat seafood, so this was mainly for Charles' pleasure. I just had a chicken Caesar salad. Charles enjoyed his food and the view was gorgeous!
Last, but not least, our hotel was amazing! We stayed at the Maxwell Hotel. Right away you are greeted with beautiful style and colors. I loved all the different patterns and mix of colors they use in the lobby. And I want a pineapple mosaic in my house now! The room was comfortable and the bed was plush and offered a wonderful night's sleep. I hope to stay in one of their hotels in the future.
