Cammy’s Trip To Seattle

My wonderful friend Cammy came to visit Seattle last weekend. While the purpose of her trip was primarily to attend a conference for work, she was able to extend her trip and spend the weekend with me and Alex. Back when Alex and I lived in our condo downtown Seattle, Cammy had come to visit us, so she had the opportunity to do a lot of tourist attractions then. We were able to relax and enjoy some different things that the Seattle area had to offer this time around.

Friday we met up at my house in the afternoon and went for a run before heading back downtown for the evening. We bellied up to the bar at Purple, a wine bar, for quite a few hours and enjoyed an array of different wines, cheeses and a delicious pizza before calling it a night.

On Saturday we decided to treat ourselves to a pedicure and more wine! Big surprise 🙂 We savored in the luxurious Pro Club Spa’s fantastic service and then our chauffeur {my lovely husband} whisked us off to wine country {aka Woodinville}.

We ended up just going to one winery, Mark Ryan Winery, because the other winery we had planned on stopping at was unexpectedly closed. We all really enjoyed Mark Ryan but felt it was a bit expensive for what it was. Even so, we took home a bottle and still have that to look forward to.

Saturday evening we decided to stay in our neighborhood and settle in at Naam Thai and Bottlehouse. We loved our Thai food and then enjoyed a bottle of one of Alex’s and my current favorite wines, a cabernet Franc, at Bottlehouse, along with a decadent pumpkin cheesecake and a chocolate pot de creme.

It was a beautiful day on Sunday, which ended up working out perfectly for our stroll through the Japanese Garden and arboretum. The fall colors were gorgeous and there was even a maple leaf ceremony at the Japanese Gardens.

Beautiful colors!

Cam and I have been friends since middle school but rarely get to spend time just the two of us. It was such a treat to have so much quality time together. I really enjoyed our time and getting the opportunity to learn more about her upcoming wedding, her job and recounting silly stories from our past. Until next time…
