Seattle



February 2, 2009     Personal

On our way back to MN we were able to spend a short amount of time in the beautiful city of Seattle. I was born in Washington, so it has always held a special place in my heart. While walking through the vibrant Public Market my appreciation and love for the city grew and I couldn't help but wish we had more time to spend there.

The Market is a photographer's dream and I had so much fun photographing the rich colors with the variety of textures and lighting.





All of the fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables gave all of us the urge to cook up a feast!

Fresh salmon



One of my favorites that makes my mouth water! :)

Only in Seattle can you get a cup of Obama coffee! haha!

After the most fabulous week, I am now home from Whistler but still have so many photos to share with you! Our 5th and final day of skiing will probably be one of the most memorable. We signed up for "first tracks" on the mountain which meant we had to to be in the gondola line by 7:00 a.m. We took it up in the dark for a breakfast at the top of Whistler where we watched the most beautiful sunrise. I of course ate quickly and headed outside to snap some photos. :) At 8:00 a bell was rung and we had the first crack at the runs. Being the only people on the mountain and the first to ski the fresh snow was unreal...


At the top for breakfast. The statue below will become a familiar symbol during the 2010 Olympics.

At the Roundhouse for breakfast



Of course we had to ride the Peak-to-Peak one more time before heading home. The wind gusts were measured at 100 km, so this ride was, well, a little unnerving! :)
