With Shinal being here for Thanksgiving weekend, we took the opportunity to show her around our little area of the Pacific Northwest. We drove down to Seattle in the early morning, with a bit of a delay at the border (what's new?!). We stopped in Bellingham for breakfast at IHOP. After stuffing our faces with delicious pancakes, we drove on to Seattle Premium Outlets where we had a quick look, and then eventually got to downtown Seattle in the early afternoon. We explored Pike Place Market, showing Shinal the famous fishmongers, bubble gum alley and of course having a quick frappucino at the original starbucks. We then made our way to the Space Needle and EMP where we just walked around the outside before getting to our Hotel for the weekend in Tukwila. We spoiled ourselves with dinner at the Cheesecake Factory, which was amazing as always. It was a nice relaxing day of sightseeing around Seattle.
