Our first day in Seattle was slow and relaxing- we slept in after being so tired from our 800+ mile drive in the past two days. Once we got to the city center, we headed to Pike's market to walk around and enjoy the farmers' market. Even though it was the beginning of December, the amount of produce and fresh food might have made me think it was spring if it hadn't been so cold. We tried chocolate pasta, apple chips, mini donuts and lots of fruit samples. The market was pretty empty since it was a winter Wednesday morning, but it was nice to stroll along without bumping into a million people. The market is so colorful-- I wish I could have packed up all of the delicious produce (and the little Italian specialty store!) to bring home.
