The Midwest Girl Goes West
June 27, 2012 § 4 Comments
I have never been West until this past week, the beautiful city of Seattle being my destination. Before Seattle, I fell in love with the mountains and the land Roosevelt fell in love with too.
My home base was Whidbey Island, where I felt love surrounding me. Every morning I had a half lox, onion, and cream cheese bagel with coffee and woke up to this view.
On a rainy day I strolled down a misty Pacific coast and enjoyed my first visit to Whidbey Island Winery.
Of course, I couldn’t leave Seattle without visiting Pike Place Market.
One of my favorites meals on this trip was having brunch at Sitka & Spruce on Melrose Avenue.
The lush northwest has inspired me and the creations will be shared with you, dear Readers, in the future. Oh, traveling is so good for my soul. However, my love for the Midwest grows and I’m happy to be home.
What has been one of your favorite or inspirational places to visit?
