While on the west coast, Mike and I ducked down to Seattle for a day and a half. The trip was too short, but definitely worth our while.
The last time I was in Seattle, it had been sunny and hot (unusual). This time it was rainy and chilly (the usual). Mike and I had quite a few discussions concerning the gloomy weather throughout the course of our trip. While Winnipeg is cold and snowy for months, it is the second sunniest city in Canada. The continuous rain and overcast skies of the west coast would be something to get used to.
Regardless of the weather, we wandered around downtown and Pike's Place market happily. My favourite things to see were the blossoming trees, buckets of fresh flowers, and the busy market.
