We woke up and got ready to leave and check out of our Airbnb. We collected our things, packed up the car and then headed to our first restaurant of the day, SERIOUS PIE & BISCUIT. This place is known for it's pizza but has killer biscuit sandwiches for breakfast too.
The view was great, but Mount Ranier would not come out to greet us all weekend. Such a bummer.
I really LOVED all the interactive exhibits up at the top of the Needle. There is a Space Needle app Chef Nephew downloaded to his phone. There were these round floor mats placed randomly around on the ground that when you pointed your phone at them a Space Needle hologram appeared!
I really thought that the Space Needle would be nothing more than a high perch in the city where we would be able to see far and wide around Seattle. But it was SO MUCH MORE than that. It was truly worth the price of admission. If you're going to visit Seattle for the first time, do not miss this.
After our trip to the Needle, guess what we did? Yes, we went to eat. This time it was at a teeny tiny sandwich shop called SALUMI
With the line out the door, you know it's going to be great:
We ordered the Lamb, the Porchetta and the Salumi sandwiches.
This was our last food stop of the trip. After this meal we went down to the Pike market again for one last run-through and then I took Arizona Cousin and Chef Nephew to a car rental place so they could rent a car and continue their culinary tour in Vancouver Canada.
I then drove myself to SeaTac for my flight home. It was a fabulous trip full of too much food, lots of fun and even a little bit of running. Just perfect.
ONE FINAL NOTE:
Our Airbnb host had a houseful of pets. There were 4 cats and a dog named Ace. (This was totally disclosed on her Airbnb listing. We knew about the pets beforehand but we're all animal lovers and the pets would never have deterred us from booking this place.)The cats kept to themselves mostly, but Ace was always hanging out in the living room at the foot of the stairs. He was such a sweet, gentle guy and loved for us to scratch his ears as we went in and out of the house throughout the trip.
May you RIP Ace, it was OUR pleasure to have known you!
ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN.
