Admiral Benbow Inn -Actually now the Heartland Cafe...but they kept & refurbished the old back room that looks like the inside of a pirate ship...complete with ship windows and an '"ocean" (fish tank in the floor).

Hi!
I didn't drop off the face of the earth...I was just in Seattle ;)

I lived in Seattle from 1999-02. I met my husband there. Many good friends of mine still live there, and it was so good to see them all.

I was able to meet up with some new friends, too. I had a wonderful lunch date with Linda of Linda Ferrol Studio- it was as if we had known each other forever! The internet is a wonderful tool for bringing kindred spirits together. Ashley and I were also able to bum around for an afternoon of fun--we visited some of her favorite spots in the city. Her keen eye and sense of style never ceases to amaze me.

Even though it has been a tough winter (& spring so far) in Seattle, and it was quite cold and rainy during our visit, all of the cherry blossoms were bursting into pink and white clouds...so beautiful!

Other highlights:

Local 360

Jack Straw

Melrose Market

Laguna Pottery

We will actually be traveling again to Seattle in July for a wedding- I can't wait to return!
