Weekend in Seattle

Seattle is my kind of town. Whenever I’m here visiting, I always find myself thinking about what it would be like to live here. I think I could get used to the lifestyle.

I’ve spent a glorious weekend soaking up the sights and sounds of the city. I love wandering around Pike Place Market. There’s so much good fish and veg on display. This place is a foodie’s paradise. I’m a sucker for Pacific Rim and Northwest cuisine.

On Saturday night, I met up with Mike Davidson for some Japanese food at Benihana. A most pleasant time was had by all (especially by the boisterous table next to us which had a disproportionate amount of silicon bling on display - something that Mike assured me was unusual for this city).

Later on today, I’ll be getting on a boat bound for Alaska. I hope to have internet access so that I can post regular updates.

In the meantime, there’s always pictures on Flickr.

Jessica and I have thinking about getting some of our stuff insured (the computers, musical intruments, etc.). Jessica spent some time today comparing insurance policies online.
