Before leaving this area, I wanted to make another trip to Seattle. So, this morning, Rod and Deb drove over from Port Angeles. We loaded up in the Jeep and headed to Bainbridge Island where we boarded the 11:30 ferry to Seattle.
What a beautiful day. The sun was out and the
Today, we planned to make a trip to the Bed Bath and Beyond as Ellie and I were looking for these cute little handles for corn on the cob. Yes, we found them, they only had two packages...so we each took one. We all love this store, so we spent some time looking at all the neat gadgets. We finally made our purchase and found that it was time to head back down to Pike Market.
Mark was on the lookout for a new variety of apple that is suppose to be better than the Honey Crisp, but it seemed that we found
Deb and I made a run through Beecher’s Cheese and tasted and purchased a couple of different cheeses.
Then we made our way down the isle sampling nuts, jellies, and sauces until we arrived at the seafood. I was taken away by the

Rod and Deb wanted to purchase Halibut. They decided on what they wanted and then we were on our way out when we spied
the chocolate shop. But, we all used our will power and walked right on by. Well, I am not sure if it was will power or the fact that we were on the fast track
down all these steps to the
waterfront that would lead us to
our destination for a late lunch. This restaurant sits right on the water. They offer a late afternoon menu, Beat The Tide, that allowed you to choose Chowder or Salad, an Entree, and your choice of Blueberry or Vanilla ice cream for $19. Yummy…we all chose the chowder….Mark and Jim had Oysters, Rod chose Salmon. Deb and I ordered the Shrimp Scampi while Ellie decided on a Salmon and Pasta dish. We all chose Blueberry ice cream except for Deb and Ellie and they stayed with the Vanilla.
After an awesome meal, we wandered through the gift shop. I purchased a couple of items and then it was time to make our way to the ferry dock. We made it just in time to load on the 5:30 boat. As we made our way across the Sound to
Bainbridge Island we said good bye to Seattle for this adventure.
What a fun day in a city I would I will come back to.
