Photo Friday: Seattle Surprises

September 11th, 2009 by bsmith | 4 Comments | Filed in Seattle Adventures

A few months ago, my husband took me to a business trip to Seattle.  Little did I know when I boarded the plane in San Diego what surprises he had in store.

We spent the first night in the tiny town of Mukilteo.  Ken was dying to see the Boeing Factory Tour which is the primary attraction in this suburb of Seattle.  I had trouble getting excited about the idea of touring a giant factory, but it was really fascinating to see how they put the planes together.  The Future of Flight Museum which is also located at the Boeing factory wasn’t the greatest, but Ken had fun playing pilot.

We managed to get a late reservation at Arnie’s in Mulkiteo, a restaurant that overlooks the water.  The food was delicious, but it took a very long time to get our dinner.  Ken and I were enjoying a leisurely dinner without kids so we didn’t really care.  The waitress even gave us a free dessert .

The next morning Ken awakened me a little before 6 am, and announced that we were headed to the Seattle Fish market, then off to a day of site seeing.  I was more then a wee bit grouchy.  I didn’t think that the fishmongers needed to see my smiling face at that hour.

A few hours later, I found myself on a ferry boat heading to Victoria.  The good news, I had a very romantic weekend in beautiful Victoria,  British Columbia.  The bad news, the closest I got to the sites of Seattle was the view from the ferry boat as we pulled away.

I would love to go back, but my schedule this fall doesn’t permit a trip. However, if you are planning a Seattle adventure, I discovered that the Smart Destinations website is selling their Seattle Go Card at 15% off right now.  This covers most of the must see Seattle attractions.  Click on the Seattle Go Card link to your right for more information.
