Pike's Place Market in Seattle
One of the places I like to frequent while in Seattle is Pike's Place Market. It draws thousands of visitors everyday, probably because it changes daily - vendors, entertainers, the flowers! Oh, the flowers - they are beautiful--and cheap! This time I resisted buying any (the last time I was there, I bought a beautiful arrangement just before leaving for the airport for my return flight and held it throughout the flight. They looked okay when I got them home, but it seemed the stress of the flight took away their longevity as they started wilting the next day), but that's not saying I didn't want some. I did connect with a new dish in a lovely Polish store! I would have liked to have purchased more than one, but managed to keep my wits about me.
