Seattle Weekend – Day 3
Our last day in Seattle found us waking up and not hungry. The two dinners probably did that. I had a slice leftover from last night and ate that while Phill remained full. Anyway, we went up to the Gas Works Park to check it out.
It was a drizzling a little so the park was pretty quiet. It was also a lot smaller than we thought.
Still it had some good views of the downtown.
After that we went around the neighborhood and saw Tableau’s headquarters. We then walked down to the Google offices and noticed there was the Fremont Farmer’s Market.
Phill bought some soap that was being sold there, and because he hadn’t eaten anything got himself a Bean Fish:
It was actually a lot better than I thought it would be. After that we took a Lyft back to the hotel where we rested until check out time.
When we left the downtown area was a sea of Seahawks fans heading down to the stadium. We walked passed Pioneer Square again, passing the Shipwreck parking garage, and found a coffee shop to chill in.
Phill worked on his website a bit.
By that time I was getting hungrier and our brunch options would be limited if we waited any longer, so we went over to Stateside.
The French-Vietnamese fusion hot spot had a different type of brunch menu (i.e. not Southern) and it all looked delicious. And so we feasted.
We had the pho braised beef potstickers.
The open faced golden brown omelette with Oregon shrimp, chili, lemongrass, rau ram and crab paste was even better than it looked and is a must order.
As is the Hong Kong style charcoal waffle with mango jam and shaved almond and coconut-pandan syrup.
After that feast we walked up Pine Street and explored the area which seemed to be bustling with new apartments, shops and restaurants.
As well as this creepy black house.
We went back downtown to their little Christmas village and walked along the nearby shopping district. By that time there wasn’t a whole lot more for us to do so we took the train back to the airport to get there early.
And then we were back on the plane ready to go back to Burbank after having a wonderful two and a half days in Seattle.
