a peek at Seattle....



pike place market
this market is second to none...the sights and smells remind you of what an European market must be like...
i love wandering through the flower market..
the blooms of color are unbelievably gorgeous ...the little old women that tend to their flowers are adorable...heads covered with bright scarves...just tall enough to peek over all the blooms to flash you a wink or two....


at this very french bakery we were delighted to find macaroons...all lined up in pretty pastel colors...i chose pink...Syd chose green...we kinda felt guilty eating them because i sent Molly on a mission in France to find them and here they are at our backdoor...shhhhh we will not tell her...though i am sure the ones in France do taste better.... however... these were very delicious.. melt in your mouth... die and gone to heaven... want to eat 100 more...kinda treat..
lucky we only had one each..
ps.....i didn't find the perfect dress but i did find the perfect skirt/blouse etc..... so all ended well...

Wow, looks like a wonderful place. I wish we had a flower market here in Austin like this one. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Nice to meet you!
