Looking out over the city, I was quite sure I would NEVER want to live in a place as busy as this...
but it was so intriguing to witness...
I will say, I still feel that I could never live in place this busy (at least not while raising kiddos),
after spending Saturday enjoying what this city had to offer,
I could be convinced to visit long term
(again, only if my kiddos weren't little people...not the place I'd want to be raising them).
My one requirement would be that I live downtown within walking distance of Pikes Place Market and the Pier.
No desire to have to drive anywhere or to have to attempt parking once I had driven.
The market was charming beyond description!
I've never in my life seen veggies and fruit and cheeses that I could say I felt excited about.
I even had to photograph them...
that's how much in love I was with this produce!
I know, I'm a little off my rocker, you'd have had to be there to appreciate it!
The one experience I could have done without, actually occurred as I was snappin' photos of that amazing produce.
This "guy", all I can recall of him was that he had dark hair, dark eyes, a powerful voice and he stood a good shoulder and head above me...anyway, he came up and said, "Hey, you can't be taking pictures..." I must have looked a little shocked and he told me he was just joking.
He asks me a question that stumps me...
"How do you get a cougar off your front porch?"
Well, I am clueless as to what this man is saying to me.
All I can think is why would a cougar be on your front porch.
And if there is one there, stay inside!!!!
Well, this is what he says next...
"Offer to buy her a pizza and invite her in."
Yep, you go it...
I stood there with a blank look on my face...
I'm still thinking that we are talking about an animal and wondering why on earth a cougar would be sitting on your front porch.
Then all of a sudden,
I realize this guy is picking up on me, and I might add in a VERY RUDE sort of manner.
I must have given him my shocked look, he kindly touched my shoulder and apologized.
I ran back up to my hubby and stayed quite close to his side the remainder of my time there!
Not sure I could handle something like that again.
I've not had that kind of experience in sooooo many years!
And I really didn't even know what to think or how to handle it.
I told my hubby about it and he just smiled and held my hand, I think he was laughing inside, but didn't want me to see it. I'm a little slow sometimes.
Here are some of my yummy produce photos...I hope you love them as much as I did!
Check out the garlic...BIGGEST garlic I've ever seen!!!
