Boy, did this long weekend come just in time! Normally, I look forward to the look weekend as a time to just sit and do absolutely nothing. But now that the boyfriend is working full-time and we are sort of long distance (an hour drive), the long weekend was also a perfect time for a mini vacation. Good thing my boyfriend also works for the government so we have some holidays together. Southwest was having a sale and so we booked a trip to Seattle! I also have a friend in Vancouver, so she met up with us in Seattle too.
I am so glad I made that trip! It was freezing (in my standards) and foggy for most of it but at least we got a sunny half of the day at some point. :)
A quick recap of what we did...
|Evidence of how foggy it was when we landed. We missed the runway the first time and had to go back up and try again.|
|We went up the Space Needle and had brunch at the Sky City Restaurant (the revolving restaurant).|
|The fog half lifted so we still got a view from our seats.|
|The entree of my brunch! French toast with hazelnut cream!!!|
|We also went to the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum. Awesome place!|
|Morning food tour at Pike Place Market. Awesome food, great tour guide. If you're ever in Seattle, check out Savor Food Tours. (I am NOT being paid to say this. :D)|
|We also checked out the Olympic Structure Park.|
|Lovely Space Needle shot at night!|
|A foggy farewell from Seattle. View from the airport.|
How did you spend your long weekend (for the other fortunate teachers like me who got one)? :)
