More of Seattle In July

We had a wonderful time with family and friends on the fourth. Check out Lana G’s picture collages taken at the party. I’m thrilled she took photos to capture the day. Fellowship, burgers, salads, gazpacho, yummy desserts and continuous games of Mexican Train the Chicken foot version. Today I’m posting photos from our Tuesday tour of downtown Seattle and beyond with my brother Leonard and his wife Mandy from Dallas.

First stop was Piroshky, Piroshky across the street from the main market and a few doors from the original Starbucks.

Here’s a little Russian lady making some of our favorites. I had the Cabbage and Onion, Dear & Mandy had the Potato and Cheese, and Leonard had the Beef and Cheese. A great way to start our tour.

We saw some fish being tossed and L & M bought me a beautiful bouquet of flowers.

Then we had some liquid refreshments with Leonard’s caramel apple.

The view of West Seattle on our way to the car.

Across town to Queen Anne Hill and Kerry Park.

This was another beautiful sunny day in Seattle.

 

You can even see Mt. Ranier!

We walked down to the end of the street to see the Western view across Elliot Bay.

There was a little garden where these beautiful hydrangeas were blooming…

 

and this lovely Dogwood variety.

Off the hill to Fremont and we discovered that the troll is still there. Unfortunately Lenin is still there, also.

Home again, home again, jiggety jig.

These are my flowers from the market. They smell wonderful.

Photobucket is holding all the photos of mine from this post hostage as of July 2017.

  1. The picture of your 4th are wonderful! It looks like you all had a great time together. The Seatte skyline is beautiful as are the flowers!

  2. Ah… the views of Seattle. I spent some of my growing up years in Washington state. I remember going up the Space Needle. I also remember our drives to Mt. Ranier, and the fog… oh the fog. But, it is one of the loveliest places I recall. Thanks for bringing back some happy memories.
    Blessings, Kim
    Oh… that does make me think of the slugs. That’s one memory I could skip!
