Getting to Know Seattle: Still Fall Color

We’re getting into Seattle’s really drippy season, so I make a point of being outdoors whenever I can. The week started out nice and I was a little light on my exercise last week, so I set off early in the morning walking to breakfast at the Crumpet Shoppe — ricotta cheese and lemon curd of course, plus two large cups of coffee. I walked from there to Pike Place Market, then to Eileen Fisher on Pine, then walked home. I was enticed by the opening weekend of Beautiful Boy that was playing downtown, so I took the bus back down the hill, saw the film, caught the bus home, and grabbed dinner at Oaxaca on top of Queen Anne hill. All in, I walked 20,213 steps , or just over 9 miles. The rain came on and off — it was a deluge when I got off the bus and ran across Queen Anne Avenue to the restaurant — but during the day I caught some gorgeous lingering fall color.

The colorful bouquets are in Pike Place market.

Flowers at Pike Place all through the winter months.

  1. Wow! You are amazing as are the Fall colors.
    We did get fitbits (at your suggestion). I celebrate when I get to 10,000 steps.
    The Fall colors are particularly beautiful here in NY this year. There are rich yellows, golds, and reds. Just beautiful.

    Enjoy!

  2. for Katie: Glad you are FitBit users! I’ll bet you rack up a lot of steps walking around the hospital. And glad we are sharing wonderful fall color.
