My girls and I spent three nights/four days in Seattle. My oldest daughter will be attending graduate school at the University of Washington in the Fall of 2017 so we decided to make a trip to find her an apartment and to explore the city.
Of course, no trip to Seattle is complete without a visit to Pike Place Market. Its filled with vendors selling flowers, meat, poultry and seafood.
Like most of our travel adventures, we enjoy eating good food and this trip was no exception. The chowder at Pike Place Chowder was the bomb!! There was a bit of wait but it was definitely worth it. I enjoyed the smoked salmon chowder while my girls both enjoyed their New England clam chowder. Be sure to try the dungeness crab sandwich. We ordered a half sandwich, which was more than enough for the three of us to sample. The crab was sweet and tender. We had dinner at The Metropolitan Grill and Matt’s in the Market. Matt’s in the Market was a treat! I had the seafood stew, which was brimming over the bowl with seafood.
Between eating and taking in the sites, we did find an apartment. It’s a great unit within walking distance of school and the grocery store. I am excited and a bit sad. I am officially an empty-nester. At the same time, I am excited. My daughters are beginning their own journey. Their futures are bright. As a dad, I could not be prouder.
