Of course my family and I had to visit Pike Place Market like all the other tourists. The streets were packed and the noise, crowds, and overall atmosphere reminded me of New York a lot. Locals seem to love to show off their pooches in this neighborhood and I saw dogs of all sizes and shapes. My favorite pup was definitely "Juneau" who is a two year old Alaskan Malamute. The owner let everyone pet Juneau and take pictures with him as well. If you're in the area, keep an eye out for him!
Pike Place might seem familiar to those of you who have never been to Seattle because this is where the first
For lunch, our group of eighteen dined at The Crab Pot which calls their specialties "Seafeasts". The Seafeasts are basically large piles of steamed seafood which are dumped right onto your table. You pick apart the crabs, clams, corn, potatoes, shrimps, and whatever else you order with your fingers (mallets and forks are provided as well) and eat it straight off the table. I love seafood and I don't mind eating like this with close friends and family. If you're with close company, love seafood, and don't mind getting a bit messy, I highly recommend this place!
On our way out of Seattle and into Canada, we stopped by a dam where you can see salmon swim upstream to re-spawn. You can literally see the poor fish struggle through the strong current to finish their life cycle. This is a pretty interesting detour if you're in the area. The dam is also surrounded by a small park which people walk dogs and have picnics.
Overall Seattle reminded me quite a bit of the Big Apple with its modern architecture and busy streets. The roads here were also very hilly like in San Francisco. If I had the time and money perhaps I'll revisit Seattle and see what else the city has to offer. Part 4 of my adventure will feature Vancouver, BC Canada. This was my first time on Canadian soil and to tell you the least I was pretty surprised by what I found. Stay tuned :)
P.S. Lately I've been noticing a decline in page views on my blog and fewer comments as well. I'm worried that what I've been blogging about is useless and uninteresting to you all. If it is, please let me know! I'm here to be entertaining and informative so it would be great if you guys could give me feedback about what you like to see and what you think I should do differently (if anything). Also, as I rewatch my Youtube videos, I realize how stiff, unnatural and BORING I am. I am truly sorry for putting you guys through that! I will guarantee that you will see how excited and happy I am when blabbing about beauty and fashion related things in my future videos which is how I normally am in real life (it's still somewhat new for me to talk to my camera and be extremely happy haha). Once again, please help me improve my blog and Youtube channel by giving me feedback and hopefully I can help you in return :D
