Day 2 1/2 in Seattle

We started the day at the Army Surplus store in Belltown after a lot of convincing from the bf. This is by far the biggest army surplus store I've ever seen in the U.S. The guys who worked there were really sweet and knowledgeable -- making the experience worthwhile. As the bf rummaged and reminisced, I fooled around with the camera.

Lentil stew: a gift from the people of the United States of America.
I can only imagine these falling from the sky by the boxfuls

Then we headed to the pier for a typical Northwestern brunch:

Crab cakes with plum sauce

Crab and shrimp sandwich with cheddar

Garlic toasts

Our lousy shot of the lousy Space Needle. Whoops. Did I say that out loud? Yeah, it wasn't too impressive.

This sign however, gave us more pleasure than our $150 meal on the Needle

Shopping in Seattle only began Fremont. This was a pretty stool in 1 of the stores. Fremont has a few unique boutiques scattered within a triangular space, and they're not unlike some in the Hayes or Mission areas

I almost got the ruffly wool McQ top on the left but there was a teeny hole on it :(
People, please be careful when trying on clothes!
This picture was taken because the cloth matched my bag

The adorable bf playing with an adorable kitty in an affordable vintage store

Toy stove I wanted as a jewelry box

Got the bf a t-shirt, some vintage earrings and buttons

We love stopping to play with animals

We love stopping for food even more

This place has the Sushi King/Genki Sushi pay by the plate concept which I absolutely adore

Picked this up from the ground

This was me smiling before eating the unbearably disgusting $10 phad thai

This was the conference hall at our hotel. I had requested a super hero pose but there were too many business folks watching

"Spoils" of the day


Despite dinner, we slept well because that's the whole idea of this vacation -- to release stress.
