This week was another doozy work-wise. The one treat: a business trip to Seattle.
Skyline looks pretty, doesn't it?
Wish I could have seen more of the Emerald City, but I was working like mad.
Well, I did have one two-hour break. And where, did I go?
Where do you think?
I headed straight to the Pikes Place Market with its many delights.
And, a colleague and I decided to take in a bay view and down some fresh seafood at the market's gloriously divy and resolutely charming Athenian Inn. There, we admired the landmark's list of classic cocktails...
...but with more work ahead, we opted for Iced Teas. That said, there was no such holding back when it came to ordering lunch.
Freshly shucked oysters, plump and briny were downed as quickly as they landed on our table.
Then, the main course arrived: Dungeness Crab Legs, succulent and sweet. Every morsel brought a moan of pleasure.
By the time we made "all gone," we were ready to pass out cold. A nap was out of the question though. Mounds of business awaited.
Looked like we'd need a quick pick-me-up in order to make it through the day. And, where do Seattle residents go for said-pick-me-up? Where could we turn?
Big surprise, I know.
And, my next work-related trip? Detroit!
Okay, don't everybody jump up and down at once.
