Yesterday was a determined tourist day. We were on the move and I was on a mission with my family and in-laws, Bill and Cindy to take in as much sightseeing that we possibly could, while taking advantage of the cooperating weather.
We started at Pecos Pit Barbeque for some authentic pulled pork and brisket sandwiches with the most amazing bbq beans and cole slaw. Their sandwhiches are so thick and delicious, you need to eat it with a fork.
We then wallked the Ballard Locks to try and burn off some of our lunch. The afternoon was perfect for yacht watching as they were traveling through the locks and under the bridges. I always get awestruck watching these feats happen and how they maneuver the ships and boats.
When we finished there, the sun was starting its desent, so we went to Kerry Park for some family photo opportunities....and the most breathtaking scenery you could imagine with the harbor, Seattle skyline and Space Needle in the background.
Soon after it was away to Pike Place Market we went. I absolutely love going to the Public Market at Pike Place. There is so much incredible energy with all the cultures and people perusing through the aisles. Of course, Sleepless in Seattle is another one of my favorite movies, which was filmed at Pike Place.
The freshest seafood you could ever imagine and produce that just jumps out at you with all the phenomenal array of colors and textures.
By the nearing of the afternoon, we needed a little hit of sugar and stopped at the Three Girls Bakery for a Snickerdoodle and Pecan Pie Bar - delish!!
We ended our adventure with a beverage and a some items from the small plates menu at Sea Town Restaurant. The perfect end to a really fun day. We even had some of our Rub with Love Snack Mix from the restaurant leftovers to give us some energy through Thanksgiving morning before our family dinner.
