My mom and I got to spend a day together in the city having fun! We always get along the best, so we can never wait to have some time together to go shopping and eat good food. We spent most of our time in Pike’s Place and the Waterfront.
We met this charismatic, funny, easy-going, and talented jeweler in a House of Jade in Pike’s Market.
A big pup I came across in a magic store!
I had to snap a quick picture of this girl’s awesome cardigan! It was the cutest outfit I saw during my entire stay in Washington!
A beautiful rose from the owner’s garden.
We also found this beautiful Mexican store, which I couldn’t be more happy about. I absolutely love all of the colors and the ladies working there were so sweet. I’m Chicana and proud. <3
All of these little trinkets were VERY expensive. Anywhere from $50 to $500.
The famous fish tossers of Pike’s Market! We visited the same weekend as Mother’s Day so it was packed with people looking for flowers and gifts.
These were tiny handmade flowers <3
We grew hungry at this point and decided to walk down to the Waterfront.
There was a ton of construction going on in Seattle, and Washington in general! It was impossible to take any photos of the city without a massive crane being right in view. It’s awesome that they’re working on the city more though. It’s important to have pride in the place that you live and take care of it!
We decided to eat on the Waterfront. I’ve been this building with wooden sculptures a few times in my life now. 🙂
You can see the workshop in which all of these life like creations are carved.
It was actually Cinco de Mayo! So, we decided to treat ourselves to some beers. We shared a burger and mouth watering crab stuffed mushrooms with melted cheese. <3
Where we ate! I definitely recommend this place. The prices were reasonable as well.
A ferry on the water. 🙂 I’ve taken it once, it’s such a beautiful experience.
And, finally, what the famous Pike’s Place looks like on the outside!
I hope that you all enjoy this travel diary entry. This was a really beautiful day to spend with my mom. It felt so great to be close to the water and in such a new environment. It’s a much different place than California!
