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.

More photos here.

  1. I didn't know that Winnipeg was the 2nd sunniest city in Canada! Your photos are awesome, Seattle is on my wish list to visit one day.
    Have a lovely week!

  6. it rained the entire time i was there. i thought portland was bad, and then i found myself thankful that wasn't that bad!

    seriously, how do you make your pictures so dreamy?! i just want to crawl in them and be there with ya'll!

    oh, and in response to your question awhile back.. my husband is studying mortuary science to be a funeral director (weird.. i know) and i'm currently leaning toward a marketing major. i have history of changing my major, so i'm sure that will be the case again!

  7. Oh I just love these pictures - so much more than vacation snapshots. They actually feel like an experience!

    The gloomy certainly gets to me here in Portland (did you make it down for a visit?). It's dangerous to visit when it's sunny thought - because it is the best place ever!

  8. Once again, jealous! Seattle-regardless of the rain-is so beautiful! The market is always a stop for me, and I love the little record stores, book stores and coffee shops you a little ways from downtown. It's also really magical a Christmas :)

  13. Hooray for Seattle! Was really looking forward to these so I could see what you saw in our city. You get used to the rain and appreciate the sun SO MUCH MORE. Every sunny day, everyone rushes outside and the city and parks are busy and jolly. Seriously. It's really neat.

  15. First of all, I adore your hair. Second, I've always wanted to visit Seattle. I feel like Seattle and I would get along really well. I've been as far as Portland...it's time to cross that border!
