TRAVEL: Seattle, a Quick Trip

| Posted by | 1 Comment

My trip to Geek Girl Con this year was my first time in Seattle, Washington. I wished I could have had an extra full day to sight-see but I did get a quick walking tour of downtown on our way from our hotel to The Crab Pot. The walk took us maybe a good half an hour or more but I am all gungho about taking advantage of a walking city.

We didn’t get to see the Public Market Center while it was actually opened. Too bad because I heard they threw fish at each other. Or something.

I’m a delicate flower, what can I say?

Despite the forecast of rain it only really sprinkled a bit on Sunday the entire weekend I stayed. The coldest was when I landed on Friday morning at the airport and the ground was wet from passing rain. Saturday got pretty sunny and warm; I walked around without a jacket on for the most part.

Seattle was a cool city and I wouldn’t mind going back for a longer visit. I want to explore more of the seafood since I know that is its more popular cuisine. Also, on the way to the airport on the Link Light Rail, I passed by interesting places I wouldn’t have minded exploring. The coffee was pretty darn good and even though it’s kind of cheesey, I would totally go and see the original Starbucks store.

My first meal was “oyster and chips” with a side of clam chowder at Ivar’s. It was pretty delicious though I’m starting to feel more and more that I would prefer fresh, raw oyster instead of having it fried. The clam chowder was good and I had another bowl at the airport before I boarded my plane to go back to Los Angeles.

We also passed by the Gum Wall (so gross) on the way to dinner. The one thing I can not abide by in the city. Sorry Seattle-peeps. But that’s just really gross.
