Hey guys! I hoped everyone had a fun weekend:)
If you have been on my Snapchat or my Instagram lately, then you would have seen me posting tons of pictures of my stay in Seattle! And if you haven't, continue reading for all deets on my trips:)
I landed in Sea-Tac at around 11 PM on Wednesday, so I did not start my day until the following morning. Spent the day around Downtown Seattle.
Did a lot of walking around Lake Union and to the Fremont Bridge.
It was my first time eating at Tutta Bella Neapolitan Pizzia and of course I had to try out their special "Tutta Bella" pizza. The pizza was very flavorful, the sauce was light and with a hint of tangy. The experience was over all great. Tutta Bella is exactly what you need -- good pizza, good drinks, and friendly serivce.
For Happy Hour I had to stop by my all time favorite, Barolo Ristorante. The food here surpass my expectations every time I am in town. The bread the keeps on coming is so delicious and accompliments the rest of the food we ordered. We ordered the Spaghetti with calamari and parmigiano, tenderloin steak, local clams with arneis broth, Italian parasley and garlic.
Started the day off with some walking down to Seahurst Park in Burien. What a hidden gem it was! This gorgeous park offers this beautiful view of Puget Sound. There are tons of driftwood to sit on and a forest that leads up to the beach.
Oyster galore!!! Had to stop by for happy hours at Elliott's Oyster House on Pier 56 over looking Puget Sound. Of course we had to get two dozens of oysters, which were soooo good!! We also got Tequila Mussles, Pesto Salmon Slider, and Blackened Fish Taco.
After happy hour, we went on the Seattle Great Wheel and this was my first time riding the wheel and it offers an amazing view of Puget Sound and Downtown Seattle. It was worth the money for the view (they allow three rotatations on the wheel).
After the Seattle Great Wheel, we decided to walk to Pike Place and checked out the first Starbucks store ever. They sold merchandises that are exclusive to that store. The line was long and ridicuolus but it was worth it for a Starbucks lover like myself.
For someone who lived in Florida and experienced clear blue water, white sand beaches, Alki was nothing compare to those beaches. However, this is the closest Seattle has to a beach and it was not that bad. The views of the mountain and Downtown Seattle are breathtaking!
Since we were already on Alki, we decided to stop by Salty's for dinner. While dining on the waterfront with the Downtown Seattle skyline as our view, we had the Salty's Blackened Fish taco, Salmon Cesear Salad, and the Fried Monterey Bay Calamari.
We started off the moring with standing in line to sign up for the a free Sunday sailing expereince. I have never been on a sailing boat before and it was an enjoyable expereince. Every Sunday the Center for Wooden Boats opens to the public for free sailing around Lake Union. However, only the first 200 that signs up get to ride on sail boats and the Center is organized through donations.
Toward the end of Day Four, we decided to have a "chill" night as I prepare for my trip back to Texas. This trip was amazing and I can't wait ot come back here!!
Until next time!!!!:)
