The first day in Washington was spent living with dogs …in the rain and mud! It was worth it, though. I made some new friends!

In the northern ‘burbs, Christina took me to a now closed classic auto store named The Detroit Autoworks. Is this some sort of metaphor? A joke against The Motor City? Nah. Just coincidence…

My lust for craft beer follows wherever I go. Thus, I swam in Washington brews!

Pike Place Market is probably the greatest market in the nation! At least, that I’ve heard or seen.

Hung out on Alki Trail as the sun descended.

  1. very satisfied with this post 🙂
    your first day experience sounds… mysterious. how come? curious!
    that giant guy.. (made by rock?) looks amazing! local art?? (seems to be under a bridge)
    the overview under giant guy is great!
    what are the great parts of that market you like a lot?
    p.s. is that a wall full of chewing gum?
    that sunset view is very beautiful!
    stay tuned for your part 2…

    • Thanks!

      Yeah, the Troll Under the Bridge is really cool! He’s made of concrete, btw.
      The market has such a variety of amazing seafood and beyond. I tried some ghost pepper jelly! Super hot!
      That IS a wall of chewing gum! Kinda gross, hey?

  2. Berlin has some similiar chewing gum walls. not too gross for me, for you? lol
