Weekend.

I’m heading to New York this week for work, and look forward to sharing some delicious food photos upon my return. I hope everyone enjoyed a love filled weekend.

Seattle’s heat wave (mid 80s is a heat wave to me) means we’ve been practically living on the balcony each night.

Catching the clouds roll by during sunset is quite a sight.

Bellevue Botanical Garden.

After a Father’s day celebration over greasy Sichuanese food, we decided to make an impromptu stop at the Bellevue Botanical Garden before heading home for what was bound to be an afternoon Netflix binge. Note to self, Netflix will be around forever (well, it better be…), but gorgeous days and fresh air are precious. Happy Summer Solstice!

Tourist.

We spent all day doing what we do the best – walking. I mapped it out using this map pedometer, and we walked 6.4 miles in a huge circle around the city. From my place in First Hill, through Capitol Hill for brunch at Barrio, down to CityDog Club on Pine for my daily doggie dose, across 6th Ave. to Belltown to visit the Suyama Space Garage Sale, then down on to 1st Ave. for an obligatory stroll through Pike Place Market then back through Downtown for a Gelato stop and a quick picture at the beautiful Seattle Public Library, then down to Pioneer Square for a walk through the new shops and restaurants and up to the International District for dinner at Boiling Point and finally all the way back home after picking up snacks at Uwajimaya. Phew. Saturdays, am I right?
