Mr. Wonderful, knowing I needed a rest, kidnapped me this weekend.
It was only a few hours, but so refreshing.
Seattle is nearby and a world away.
No matter how many times I visit Pike Place Market I never tire of it...
... the cheese maker, the fishmonger, the glorious fruits and vegetables...
All of it looks like a still life painting, and fairly sings out, "SPRING!"
Everywhere you look there is something more splendid than the glimpse before.
When we finally turn away I am almost dazzled.
But not so overcome that I miss the architectural delights of Seattle, a truly amazing city. Art deco touches on buildings, beautiful water drains underfoot... there is just so much beauty the city has to offer.
And the delights of window shopping!
I was not the only one to fall prey to the shopkeepers' artful windows.
After a few hours we headed back to the train station.
Time to come home.
What's your getaway place? Where do you go when you need a little break?
I am so glad Mr. Wonderful knew I was tired and snatched me away for a day-long adventure.
