What a difference a couple of days make. Today was gorgeous. I had lunch with my good friend E in Fremont. We ate at Homegrown Sandwich Shop which focuses on local sustainable products for their sandwiches. We ordered a roast turkey and a roast pork and split them so we could each try the sandwiches. They were so yummy. I liked the roast turkey better although the pickled red onion was a nice touch on the roast pork. We went for a short walk along the canal before she had to return to work.
I had originally planned on walking around Green Lake when I realized that it would be a great day to go to the Olympic Sculpture Garden at Pier 70 in Seattle. It has always been overcast and cold on my previous two visits. Today was wonderful.
The hillsides were covered with lupine and wildflowers. The dogwoods were in bloom. The sun and sea perfectly complemented the garden and sculptures. I'll post more next week on the garden.
I decided to stay a while more and walked down the waterfront to Pier 66. It is one of the best places to view the Seattle skyline. The picture above is from the roof top at Pier 66. I also discovered the wonderful Belltown P-Patch on my walk back to the car. I'll tell more next week also.
The temperatures are in the mid 60's - sky blue - scented breeze - lovely day in the city.
